Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind

Same time each week. Different show each week!

With its ever-changing “menu” of plays, Too Much Light… is an attempt to perform 30 plays in 60 minutes—an original concept by Greg Allen. The audience is fully part of the act, deciding the order that these plays are performed. Each week, these plays shift as ensemble members add new plays to the existing body of work. The single unifying element of these plays is that they are performed from a perspective of absolute honesty. Read more about what it means to be a “Neo-Futurist.”

The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey

“BRAVO! A tale that shimmers with needling suspense. James Lecesne’s multihued performance glows with such humanity (and robust humor) that you may find yourself choking back a tear or two. He is a dazzling beacon of theatrical talent.Charles Isherwood, The New York Times Critic’s Pick

From the writer of the Academy Award-winning film Trevor comes The Absolute Brightness of Leonard Pelkey, the new play written and performed by James Lecesne, directed by Tony Speciale (with original music by Tony Award-winning composer Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening).

One of the greatest storytellers of his generation, James Lecesne portrays every character in a small Jersey shore town as they unravel the story of Leonard Pelkey, a tenaciously optimistic and flamboyant 14 year old boy.

A luminous force of nature whose magic is only truly felt once he is missing,Leonard becomes the unexpected inspiration for a town as they question how they live, who they love and what they leave behind.
