Dave Awl, Rachel Claff and Phil Ridarelli, former ensemble members of The Neo-Futurists, join Justin to talk about the news that “Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind” creator Greg Allen is not renewing the performing rights for the iconic show. Dave, Rachel and Phil talk about their emotions after hearing that “TMLMTBGB” would be leaving the Neo-Futurarium, the memories they have of performing in the show, the difficulty putting on the show, the stamina and discipline required to come up with new material each week, the strong connection that people have with the show, the social issues that the Neo-Futurists tackled each week, the counter-culture era of the late 80’s and the early 90’s, what it meant for them to be a part of such an amazing  show and what we should we expect from the Neo-Futurists after “Too Much Light” closes at the end of the year. We also are treated to a live performance of, “Theater Chat,” a play that was performed in 1994!
