A unique show that is good for some genuine laughs. Does not change, so I would not recommend seeing it more than once unless you are taking someone who has not seen it before. Beware sitting in the "splash zone", even with the ponchos your...More

Sensory show. 3 blue men that don’t talk is actually very entertaining. Looking for a show while in Chicago, and decided we should see Blue Man Group since it is so popular. I would like to see the “Vegas” version. Show is worth seeing. Briar...More

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

We had a all-day rainy Saturday on our visit to Chicago. After considering several options, Blue Man Group was selected for the afternoons entertainment. Our group included 2 pre-teen grandsons, parents and grandparents. We ALL had a blast. It's not a cheap date, but certainly...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.

Visited for a Saturday night show, having wanted to see the show for years. It's a mixture of music, percussion, comedy and art. A completely different night in a theatre that you'll ever have! Warning - there is some audience participation - so not the...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.

I think you actually do see a bit better when you're a bit further back. In Chicago, the first rows are below stage level, and there are things to watch the length and breadth of the stage. You do have a better overall... More
