The New York Times heralds the show as “One of the most delightful performance pieces ever staged.” The Baltimore Sun raves, “Blue Man Group packs a wallop.

“In order to create a touring version of our theatrical production, we knew we had a creative challenge to tackle,” says Blue Man Group Co-Founder Philip Stanton. “We needed to find a way to transform theaters of all shapes and sizes into spaces in which the Blue Man can intimately connect with the audience, where the audience can become engaged with the spirit of the show and the Blue Man himself. We think we have finally figured it out, and hopefully we will accomplish our goal, which is always to help audience members reconnect with their own sense of wonder and discovery, with their own sense of what is possible in their lives.”
BLUE MAN GROUP is a form of entertainment like nothing else; guaranteed to be an outing you will never forget. If you’ve never seen BLUE MAN GROUP, it’s a must-see. If you’re already a fan, don’t miss it!
