Editorial Review of Neo-Futurarium

Half the fun of going to the Neo-Futurarium theater is just that: going. That's because the Neo-Futurists actors and staff make every second of your experience (from buying your tickets to walking into the theater) a lively one. And whether you're an artist, an appreciator of the arts or just an appreciator of laughing, you'll be guaranteed a good and hilarious time, especially if you take in Neo-Futurarium-staple "Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind."

The event begins once the doors open: Two Neo-Futurist actors explain the ticket-buying process (it's $7 plus whatever you roll on a six-sided die). Roll, pay and step into the theater, where another Neo-Futurist will ask your name to write you a name tag; doesn't matter what you tell them, they'll write down whatever they want, Kumquat. Then the show begins, staging 30 plays in 60 minutes, with the audience choosing the order off the play "menu." The individual plays change every week, so come as often as you like without risking a dull repeat. Tip and incentive: TMLMTBGB is an extremely popular show performed in an extremely small theater. Lines often form around the block, so arrive early or you may not get in. And the incentive: When the show sells out, everyone gets free pizza.
