Quotes & Highlights

“Blue Man Group is as wildly entertaining today as it was when it debuted.” —Boston Globe

Description

Blue Man Group’s critically acclaimed show has been called “visually stunning,” “wildly inventive” and “hysterically funny.” Although it’s impossible to describe, people of all ages agree that Blue Man Group’s show is an intensely exciting and wildly outrageous experience that leaves the entire audience in a blissful, euphoric state. With no spoken language, Blue Man Group is perfect for people of all ages, languages and cultures. This unique theatrical experience is a form of entertainment like nothing else!

The show is recommended for ages 7 and older. Please be aware that the show contains dynamic live music and utilizes a state-of-the-art sound system — there’s a lot of music and percussion in the performance as well as use of a strobe light (mainly in the final sequence). There are signs carefully marked with this information at the theater. Since noise and strobe lighting can affect patrons of all ages, we suggest you ensure that this would be acceptable for everyone attending the performance.

The show runs approximately one hour and 45 minutes with no intermission.
