Excellent and fun entertainment. Audience participation is a hoot. My 11 year-old loved it. The actors are quite talented; would’ve made Buster Keaton proud.

Our kids 12 and 14 loved it. Great interactive show. I bought tickets on Groupon for 54$ a piece and ended up about ten rows from the stage in the center. 90 minutes went by in what felt like minutes. With the show was longer.

This was my 2nd time seeing the Blue Man Group! I saw them in Boston years ago and they never disappoint. Always unexpected, always shocking, always something new. Funny, entertaining. I'm a solo traveler so I seek stuff like this.

It’s not that big of a theatre. I think the views would be great regardless we were on the right side—no problems

As far as I know every show in every location is different. I'd contact them locally.
