(April 20) ATTENTION DEFICIT THEATER If you love theater but usually find yourself restless by the third act, Washington's Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company may have the production for you. "Too Much Light Makes The Baby Go Blind" is actually a collection of 30 productions and they're all performed in 60 minutes by Chicago's Neo-Futurists. The audience decides the sequence of the funny, poignant, and political shorts Wednesday through the first of May.
