My family loved this show. Our 13 yr. old laughed the entire time (hard to come by these days). It is an odd mix of rock music, technology and humor. It is not a show with speaking or singing, so much is left to interpretation. The theater is very small, so most seats are excellent (the seating chart will indicate... More

Having no idea what to expect, only knowing that my friend had taken her 4 sons to this event and enjoyed it, we went during Spring Break with our 3 teenage boys. We had taken the train up from Boston in the afternoon, so we were plenty tired from traveling. The boys groaned about going out for the evening, but... More

The show started out okay but then went downhill quickly - the performers had little talent to offer so they resorted to pulling people from the audience to try and humiliate them rather than using their own talent, or lack thereof, to entertain and make people laugh. It is clearly a stale show that hopes to lure tourists and unwitting... More

My partner is a fan of the Blue Man Group, and whilst looking up things to do on our recent visit to NYC he saw that they were playing, so promptly booked us tickets. I listen to their music around the house,and do quite enjoy their sound, particularly the instrumental parts. However, I had no clue what this show would... More

Even if you've seen it in the past, they update it often enough to keep it fresh while retaining some of the original highlights that made them famous. This is a high energy show for adults and older kids.... and even visitors who aren't fluent in English can enjoy it without the effort of trying to follow dialogue. It's in... More

Humor, Music, Light Show, and optical illusions are all part of this great off Broadway show. The theater is small but comfortable. I recommend getting a seat mid-theater and avoid the far left and right sides due to stage lighting obstructing the view. There is even a photo op session after the show. Great entertainment.

Our family of 4, including two teens 17 and 13, attended this show was definetly one of our highlights. It is great how they incorporate the audience into the show. They give good messages, and it is good clean fun!

I can't see why anybody over the age of 10 would enjoy this crude, overrated show which is just mediocre percussion meeting performance art with face paint. This review will be brief, as I want to put todays debacle behind me, and as I will never get back the 80 minutes I spent watching this overrated and overpriced show, I... More

In plays you want to sit in seats higher than L. In this slap stick crazyness you want to be in the front row. No singing or talking, just craziness. My teens had a blast. It was funny. No swearing. Paint flies and Jellos fly into the covered audience, small theatre, no intermission...
