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

The Blue Man Group show was quite entertaining. I'm not sure if it is a see-more-than-once show, but it is definitely worth seeing. How much you enjoy the show depends on the seats. The closer to the stage, the more interactive the show. The center block of seats also seemed to be more interactive than the sides of the theater.

The Blue Man Group with constant drumbeat in the background is a barrel of laughs with surprises galore. Getting in touch with our new social media age, the stars of the show played off of three giant suspended cell phones to poke fun at our current obsession. Two audience members joined them on stage for skits about eating etiquette and... More

I brought my 10 year old daughter to celebrate her straight A report card. We sat in the poncho seats and had the best time. The show was hilarious and incredibly entertaining. She had the best time. One of the Blue Men interacted with her throughout the show - helping her touch a ball and gave her a painting. When... More

This show was a riot! I was randomly picked from the audience to participate in one of the routines! I couldn't stop laughing because it was so much fun and these guys are great at what they do. This was my second time to attend this show but it was a first for my husband. He had a grin on... More

A nice light night out. Fun and somewhat creepy, just an overall good time. And they have a bar...The show is a blend of corny, fun and talent.

Great night!! I sat with my boyfriend and several friends in row 6 and we had a great time. Very unique production. At the end, there was a big blow up ball getting thrown around and people were rushing to hit it back up in the air for the next person. Very cool atmosphere. We didn't get splashed much (sadly)...

We took our son after his graduation from Navy Bootcamp on a trip down to Chicago and attended the 1pm Sunday show. The seating for the price is exceptional. The theatre only seats 650 so really no a bad seat in the house. It was our third time seeing the show but we were with two people who had never... More

Wife an I attended the Blue Man Group expecting to see a highly entertaining professional show. Instead we both walked away (should have walked 1/2 way through!) shaking our heads at the low level of professionalism and entertainment. I have been to better shows at the local high school and paid a fraction of the cost. What the heck are... More

If you're a "paint by numbers" kind of guy, this may not suit you. It's unpredictable, unconventional audience-participation - and, a whole lot of fun. Never seen anything quite like it, may never again. Awfully glad we went to this.
