I had not heard of the Blue Man Group before I saw the show. So no expectations there. The theater is small, so any seat will be good. Lots of kids that day. Ponchos are given to those seated in front. The show is unique,...More

While they still have the percussion and the black light effects, this show offers much more. Nice event for a couple or the whole family.

This was the 3rd time I saw this production (seen in other cities). This is just great entertainment. Excellent music, audience participation and very funny too. Great night out regardless of the cost.

The show has changed a lot over the years. I saw it probably ten years ago and really enjoyed how there was lots of percussion and comedy in it. Nowadays, they use too much technology in it including having fake iphones on the stage. Still...More

My wife and I came here and really enjoyed the show! They were pretty entertaining and funny. Tickets were pretty reasonable but the crowd was kind of small. There were a lot of empty seats. They had a really fun activity for the crowd and...More

I guess my expectations were too high. I read the reviews and wanted to enjoy this show. The first 10-15 minutes were very entertaining, but it became very predictable and boring after that. My daughter and I sat front row and that was too close....More

No, that wasn’t my photo. We were on the floor about 1/3 of the way back from the stage. Fantastic seats.

We took the CTA 22 bus from downtown- which was very convenient and less expensive! Only had to walk a couple minutes when we got off at Clark & Berry.
