English Theatre Leipzig’s production of Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind (TML) is an excellent reproduction of the famous Neo-Futurist play by writer, director and actor Greg Allen. High energy, controlled chaos with a strong reliance on audience participation, this is not your usual, sedate night out at the theater.
“English Theatre Leipzig (ETL) presents a new show, starting this week: Greg Allen’s Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind. I had a few questions for director Emily Wessel about this unusual production – ’30 plays in 60 minutes’ – and what makes it so different to other stage formats.”
English Theatre Leipzig is staging a new play, Eurydice, at Neues Schauspiel Leipzig. Starting with the premiere on Thursday, September 5th, there will be 5 shows, so everyone will have an opportunity to see it. We had a chance to chat with the play’s director, Julia Kragh, to find out what to expect.
