30 PLAYS IN 60 MINUTES!
An audio version of the long-running theatre performances still playing in Chicago, New York City, and perhaps coming to a city you drove through one night last year.
This is an audio collection of some of the best plays presented by Chicago's renowned theatre troupe, The Neo-Futurists. Three times every weekend since 1988 this small ensemble presents thirty short plays against the clock, with 2 to 12 new plays premiering each week. These are complete pieces, some humorous, some moving and always thought-provoking. This is socially-conscious work, not mere pop culture regurgitation and examination
Over 100,000 theatregoers have paid to see "Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind" in Chicago. A branch ensemble originally presented at Manhattan's Joseph Papp Public Theatre and now creates regularly at the Krane Theater on 4th Street.
The 43-track single CD, recorded both in-studio and live at the Neo-Futurarium, recreates much of the atmosphere of the live performance including the spoken introduction/explanation of the unusual format with some additional bonus material. There's even time-out for pizza. The 16-page booklet contains credits for each play with pertinent background information and some action-packed photos from the stage show.
Promotionally, the group also has affordable memorabilia including t-shirts and buttons and a frequently visited website: www.neofuturists.org
