The New York Neo-Futurists present an ever-changing lineup of short plays, each written by a performer, honed by the ensemble, and randomly collaged with high-energy audience participation.

After shuttering the long-running 'Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind,' the New York Neo-Futurists are mounting a brand-new weekly series. 'The Infinite Wrench' is a mechanism that unleashes a barrage of two-minute plays for a live audience. Each play offers something different, be it funny, profound, elegant, disgusting, topical, irrelevant, terrifying, or a song; all are truthful and tackle the here and now, inspired by the lived experiences of the performers. With new plays every week, 'The Infinite Wrench' is the Neo-Futurists’ ongoing and ever-changing attempt to shift the conventions of live performance and speak to audiences including those unreached or unmoved by traditional theater.

Funny, Fast-paced, Frenetic, Fresh, Frantic

See it if you enjoy clever improv, offbeat storytelling & raunchy comedy, all couched within an unorthodox, fast-paced audience-participatory game.

Don't see it if you seek a conventional theatrical experience, don't have an idiosyncratic sense of humor, and/or aren't prepared for a party atmosphere.

Dizzying, Indulgent, Disappointing

See it if If you saw "What Makes the Baby Go Blind" and liked it. It is the same show. Though it says it has a more political slant, it doesn't.

Don't see it if you don't like 1 minute vignettes that are not connected, aren't particularly funny or clever. Most fun was when the aud. batted balloons.

88
Ambitious, Clever, Dizzying, Intelligent, Intense

See it if You enjoy small little moments vs one long drawn out story. I saw Infinite Pride and was amazed at their variety and their stories. So smart

Don't see it if You need a cohesive story line and don't like interactive theater. Go in with no expectations and you'll have a great time.

Funny, Clever, Entertaining

See it if you have the time and ready for something new!

Don't see it if you aren't a fan of the crossover between improv, stand up, and scripted plays.

82
Funny, Clever, Edgy, Quirky, Raunchy

See it if you want to see a fun & fast-paced show where the talented cast gives their all. Short plays vary from hilarious, raunchy & contemplative.

Don't see it if you have conservative views, you might be offended by nudity and sexual content, you don't like some interaction/audience participation

85
Funny, Ambitious, Quirky, Refreshing, Relevant

See it if You want to support small, local theater and want an entertaining and interactive night with a funny and talented ensemble of actors

Don't see it if You don't like to be made uncomfortable, nudity/cursing bothers you, you're conservative, you like traditional theater

Clever, Dizzying, Profound, Quirky, Raunchy

See it if You like to see actors stretch themselves theatrically. You get a little bit of everything here-from unexpectedly touching moments to raunch

Don't see it if You don't like short sketches, audience participation or sexual topics. As one would expect with 30 sketches in 1 hour, it's a bit uneven.

Also Insightful moments are mixed with campy, over-the-top wackiness. Well ... Read more Read less

See it if you enjoy experimental, interactive theater performed by a young, enthusiastic, politically conscious cast

Don't see it if you don't like sketch comedy or are expecting a polished production

85
Funny, Absorbing, Dizzying, Edgy, Entertaining

See it if you like a lot of short plays, spontaneous and playful energy, non-traditional theater, & are open to conceptual art in a divey place.

Don't see it if you don't like a lot of short plays about many topics. The performers and writing are good, it's the drunk crowd that can be irritating

88
Funny, Ambitious, Edgy, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you want a solid off-the-beaten-path entertainment. Actors have so much energy and the writing is very thoughtful and thought-provoking.

Don't see it if It's a series of very short acts -- 30 of them in 1 hour. Not for someone who wants to see a "story".

See it if you want to see something totally different and love being involved in shows.

Don't see it if you hate audience participation and anything that isn't standard theater.

Ambitious, Clever, Quirky, Entertaining, Improv-like

See it if You want to try a new format. These max two minute sketches were sometimes amusing and a few not so amusing. Mostly amusing.

Don't see it if You don't like commentary on social and political issues or audience participation. The talking doll sketch needs to have better sound.

Also Whether it's the "talking doll" or any other sketch using the speaker,... Read more Read less

Clever, Great acting, Must see, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if One of the best shows I've ever seen. Highly recommend seeing it. No two shows are alike, I will definitely return to experience this again

Don't see it if You are uptight and only like traditional shows. It's a must see, just go and thank me later.

Ambitious, Clever, Dizzying, Disappointing, Overrated

See it if you enjoy a series of short, zany, loud, senseless, crazy skits geared for a youthful groupie audience in their 20s-30s.

Don't see it if you want a well-scripted show with a theme. You don't enjoy lots of yelling from the cast and the audience

Also These are certainly not Saturday night Live quality skits. More like H... Read more Read less

Talented company, Like improv, only scripted, Wildly entertaining, Peaks & valleys, Infinitely wrenched up

See it if challenge of 30 plays done in 60 minutes by a committed company that has perfected its technique over 30 yrs is your idea of theatre magic

Don't see it if audience participation, low rent production values, topical subject matter, flying objects, sharing ice cream sandwiches are deal breakers

85
Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Quirky, Refreshing

See it if You want to have some new theatrical experiences and you would like to participate during the show.

Don't see it if You prefer traditional theaters and a coherent story. This is an hour of 30 shows, uhhh. A great challenge for the actors, but they rock!

Clever, Dizzying, Refreshing, Entertaining, Fun

See it if you want to have a fun night of unexpected surprises, you want theatre that's cheap and totally worth your money

Don't see it if you don't want to participate, you want something predictable and cliched

Also I don't really know why they decided to rebrand because this is basica... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Ambitious, Clever, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if you enjoy performances that push you to your limits and make you think. These performances get pretty personal, and you WILL be changed.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy personal monologue or political satire with a liberal humor. Also if you don't like audience participation.

85
Delightful, Dizzying, Edgy, Quirky, Refreshing

See it if you have a short attention span, or if you like experiencing a unique, interactive theatrical event.

Don't see it if you have zero interest in participating in the zaniness.

Funny, Clever, Entertaining

Don't see it if You are looking for a traditional play.

60
Clever, Quirky, Confusing, Entertaining, Fluffy

See it if You like supporting young theater troupes trying to do something new on limited budget; positive energy exuding from cast is refreshing

Don't see it if Sketches uneven; clever ideas mostly unimproved by development/editing so often falls flat; "game rules" merely give illusion of structure

8
Raunchy, Indulgent, Disappointing, Excruciating, Overrated

See it if You don't like theater. There is a clock ticking down the minutes of this one hour show. That was the best part.

Don't see it if You value theater at all. If I hadn't been seated in the front row, I would have left.
