Editorial Review
Blue Man Group is one of New York's longest-running shows and one of the most complicated to describe! At the simplest level, three performers in black with bald, blue heads splatter paint and use every imaginable prop in this totally fun and unique production.

But it's so much more than that! These hilarious blue-and-black characters take the audience through a multi-sensory experience that combines theater, percussive music, art, science and vaudeville into a form of entertainment that is like nothing else either on or off Broadway.

The show's origins lead back to the late '80s, when longtime friends Chris Wink, Phil Stanton and Matt Goldman began to appear on the streets of Manhattan covered in blue make-up. The appearances led to a theatrical show, which premiered at the legendary performance space La Mama, ETC and finally to off-Broadway's Astor Place Theatre in 1991. Since then, over 60 Blue Men have entertained crowds in New York, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas and beyond.

Be prepared to show up on time or face the wrath of the Blue Men, who will hound you for being late. And with some big surprises—a very select few audience members get to interact with the Blue Men—be prepared for some amazingly funny moments. This show is so exciting and action-packed that the time passes very quickly. And with a day-glo orchestra banging out the music, their zesty accompaniment enhances the wild happenings even more. At times you really won't believe your eyes or ears.

Every few months the show is tweaked and fresh material added. We've seen it several times and find it as breathtaking and wonderful each additional time.

Viva the Blue Man Group!

The first 4-5 rows are considered the "Poncho Section," meaning that a poncho will await audience members seated in those rows and for good reason.
