I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing the infamous Blue Man Group perform twice now, with my first time culminating in my husband’s head encased in a Jello mold on stage with them in Las Vegas. (You don’t ever really forget that kind of thing.)
So I was super excited to hear that the shiny blue pop culture performance artists are now on the road for its first U.S. theatrical tour, and coming to Huntsville, all thanks to Broadway Theatre League! Full of live music, outrageous comedy, wacky technology tricks, and packed with wicked percussion, this is a show that leaves the entire audience in a blissful, euphoric state.
With no spoken language, the Blue Man Group will mesmerize music lovers of all ages and across all nationalities. The show is recommended for ages 5 and up, but if you bring kids under 10 I’d pack earplugs – it can get pretty loud. If you’re lucky enough to get seats in the front you’ll also need to be aware of the renowned “splatter zone”, guaranteeing you’ll leave with a personal souvenir of neon painted clothes.
The New York Times heralds the show as “One of the most delightful performance pieces ever staged.” E! Entertainment News exclaims, “Blue Man Group is what every live performance aspires to be.” The Baltimore Sun raves, “Blue Man Group packs a wallop. It’s a big, loud, funny, silly, visually arresting production!”
