Baby, Hold on to Me
Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind has a long, storied history. Spearheaded by Chicago ensemble the Neo-Futurists, this unique performance-art-turned-theater-piece ran 50 weekends out of the year from 1988 to 2016. That’s a long time. In fact, it’s the longest running show the city of Chicago ever saw. TMLMTBGB, in shorthand, consists of 30 rapid-fire pieces performed over the span of just 60 minutes. The show is now having its Albuquerque re-birth thanks to Duke City Repertory Theatre. Premiering locally on Wednesday, Aug. 22 at Tricklock Performance Lab and running just until Aug. 28, the show promises a one-of-a-kind experience every time. All shows begin at 8pm, except for the Sunday, Aug. 26 show, which begins at 4pm. A price tag of $15 brings you and the baby together. This show is recommended for audiences 15 and older.
