Every Friday and Saturday night, the New York Neo-Futurists perform their signature show – Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind – at the Kraine Theater on East Fourth Street.  It is an important piece of the Lower East Side arts scene, and thus, not to be missed.

Too Much Light is a vibrant, anxiety-ridden event in which the talented cast of characters forever attempts to perform 30 short plays in 60 minutes. By design, the performance is highly interactive, incorporating audience participation all along the way. And since no two shows are exactly the same, the repeat watchability factor is fairly strong.

Now, to celebrate National Poetry Month (April), the Neo-Futurists are changing the format of Too Much Light for one weekend only.  Broadway World has the skinny:

NEW YORK NEO-FUTURISTS are pleased to present a special edition of their ongoing show Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind in honor of the culmination of National Poetry Month. TOO MUCH LIGHT MAKES THE BABY GO BLIND: 30 POEMS IN 60 MINUTES will be presented at The Kraine Theater (85 East 4th Street, New York, NY 10003) on Friday, April 30th and Saturday, May 1st at 10:30pm.
