“What happens when drunk video gamers try to direct a stage version of Hamlet? You'll have about a minute to find out. The Neo-Futurists have chosen gaming as the theme of both their "Neocade" fall fund-raiser—which combines theater, gaming, art, and beer—as well as this weekend's performances of Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go GAME POSITIVE: 30 Digital Plays In 60 Analog Minutes. Shakespeare and Nintendo may not appear to be the most obvious bedfellows, but the hyperactive 30-plays-in-60-minutes show manages to resemble video games in spirit.”

"We're not looking to becoming a video game theater company, but it's part of who we are as an ensemble—a lot of our lives have been shaped by this element of gaming and technology [...] So this is more about our shared cultural dialogue. Even if you haven't played a game in ten or 20 years, you remember what you liked about it and this taps into those feelings." Bilal Dardai wrote this. Get acquainted.
