Finally after many years of wanting to go ......it was worth the wait and especially fun going with the girls ......it did not disappoint. Very talented group with a lot of action ......kinda like a modern mime with a show based on current happenings.

This was our first time catching a blue man show. It was really cool. the silent humour, the choreography, the music..super cool. My husband and I really enjoyed it and thought it would be a pretty cool show for older kids as well.

Outstanding show with non-stop entertainment for all ages. The silent humor was at first surprising but then made the whole experience that much more unique.
