Bloomsburg University Players

BLOOMSBURG — The Bloomsburg University Players will perform plays from “Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind” in their February Festival: 30 Plays in 60 Minutes. The show runs from Thursday to Saturday, Feb. 13 to Feb. 15, and continues on Wednesday and Thursday, Feb. 19 and. 20.

All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Alvina Krause Theater, 226 Center St., in downtown Bloomsburg. Tickets are free to BU students, $6 for adults and $4 for seniors and students from other schools.

“Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind” was originally produced by the Chicago-based experimental theater troupe, the Neo-Futurists, whose production has been running for more than 20 years. Neo-Futurism is inspired by the Italian Futurist movement from the early 20th century, which is based on the concepts of honesty, speed and brevity. During the production, the audience calls out the number of the performance they would like to see next, creating an unpredictable and exciting atmosphere.

The BU Players’ production is directed by professional guest artist Kevin R. Free, a long-time New York Neo-Futurist.

Advance tickets are available at the Haas Box Office, at 570-389-4340. For more information about the BU Players, visit buplayers.org. For information on the Neo-Futurists, visit www.neofuturists.org.
