“Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind” (TMLMTBGB) was the longest-running show in Chicago and the only open-run Off-Off-Broadway show in New York. The show is the work of the Neo-Futurism movement, a variant of the Italian Futurism movement and reflects their aesthetic of non-illusory theater, where, as they describe it, “all of our plays are ‘set’ on the stage in front of the audience. All of our ‘characters’ are ourselves… We do not aim to ‘suspend the audience’s disbelief’ but to create a world where the stage is a continuation of daily life”.
