BLUE MAN GROUP is a popular theatrical show in Chicago that has been called "visually stunning," "wildly inventive," and "hysterically funny." The show takes a closer look at the technology that both surrounds and isolates us, showcasing technogeek ingenuity while uniting the audience in primal, collective exhilaration.

We bought tickets for a Sunday show online the Friday night before the show and were lucky enough to get... More

Went with my wife, having read the reviews. Well worth the visit. Superb music (loud rock so avoid little kids or maybe anyone who is not into that kind of music), very funny and interactive. Never seen anything like this before - but would go again. If you don't mind being exposed to paint and "sticky goo" then sit close... More

It is very interesting to see how they make music in so many ways. They are true musicians and always keep you on your toes wondering what they will come up with next. I would definitely recommend seeing them.

We attended a Sunday afternoon show and really enjoyed it. The only reason that I don't give it 5-stars is because I felt like it was more targeted to kids. The show was great, though, and had I attended with a child rather than another adult, it would be 5-stars all the way. Aspects that are totally worthy of 5-stars,... More

If you have nothing better to do, yes this fits the bill. I've been to Cirques, Vegas venues and this was a bit boring and nothing was really that creative. The only part I liked was the giant balls that the audience stood up for and volleyed around. We were a group of 4 women from 50-20s.

If you are looking for a different kind of show with audience interaction-this is it. I have been to see this group 2 times previous to this trip and still loved it. There were new parts to the show and the old parts were still entertaining. We paid the extra to be in the splash zone-probably won't do that again.... More
