Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

The Neo-Futurists’ Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind, which was Chicago’s longest-running piece of theater at nearly three decades, featured an innovative ensemble of writer-performers attempting to perform 30 miniplays in 60 minutes. After a split with the company’s founder, the current Neos (and their sibling companies in New York and San Francisco) tweaked the formula and relaunched under the title The Infinite Wrench. The resulting late-night hour is still equal parts block party and populist performance art. The company also produces a season of original prime-time shows that take the Neo-Futurist aesthetic to feature length. The Neo-Futurarium also plays host to That's Weird, Grandma, the giddy, family-friendly weekly performance jam of goofball edutainers Barrel of Monkeys.
