Thirty plays in 60 minutes. They said it couldn't be done, right? OK, they didn't actually do it that night, but I was mighty happy they decided to go ahead and finish all 30. We were in Chicago during Pride week, visiting our daughter, when we took in the show. The theme was Pride and it was raucous! As sexagenarians, my wife and I were--, how do I say this without offending myself? -- amongst the older audience members. But it didn't matter; everyone was into it! I like a theater experience where you feel a part of that experience. The players were fantastic: funny, feeling, physical, flexible and many other positive f-sounding adjectives. We're going to see Hamilton in Chicago tonight, but I suspect The Neo-Futurists will live longer in my memory.
Amazing hidden gem! Irreverent & occasionally dirty, these short play compilations are fascinating and thought-provoking. I've gone back again and again because each shown is different. Ticket price depends on a dice roll $9-15. Come prepared to shout.
