DIXON – The show must go on, despite the snow, which simply must go.

That's the sentiment of Tim Boles, Dixon Stage Left's general manger and director.

The comedy "Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind" opens at 7:30 tonight at the theater at 306 W. First St., next to Orom Restaurant.

It returns Saturday, and Feb. 14-17 and 23 and 24, all at 7:30 p.m.

"Too Much Light," which first opened in 1988, offers 30 2-minute plays performed in the space of an hour, in a random order chosen by the audience and with the use of a 60-minute timer to keep everyone honest. It's rated R for language and adult humor.

Ticket cost $20, or $15 for groups of six or more, and $5 for students, online or at the door 30 minutes before the play begins.

There's a flash5 sale going on – enter flash5 code at the online checkout at dixonstageleft.ticketleap.com, or mention the promotion at the door, and get $5 off. Tickets also are available at Trein's Jewelry, 201 W. First St., and at The Crystal Cork, 219 W. First.

Season tickets also are available, as are discounts for those who see the same show more than once.

Stage Left is a new "black box" theater venue in a vintage second-floor space, with cabaret-style seating – small tables and informal groups of chairs with intimate views of the thrust stage – and beverages provided by The Crystal Cork are available.
