Owner description: BLUE MAN GROUP is a popular theatrical show in Chicago that has been called "visually stunning," "wildly inventive," and "hysterically funny." The show takes a closer look at the technology that both surrounds and isolates us, showcasing technogeek ingenuity while uniting the audience in primal, collective exhilaration.

“Wonderful ten years ago ..wonderful NOW”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

We visited Chicago over ten years ago and saw The Blue Men at Briar theater location then. We returned with our ten year old . We were just as enthralled this time. New to us performance, with interactive audience participation kept our son in AWE. GREAT SHOW.

“Fun times”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We love BMG. I think the show is getting a little old. We saw them in VEGAS many years ago and the show isn't as fascinating now as it was then. With that said, though, if you go to Chicago, you shouldn't miss this iconic group. Use the coupon in the back of the CityPass for great seats.

“Hilarious and Deep At the Same Time”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Seeing the Blue Man Group was a really great experience. The show was all that I expected and a ton more. What I thought was really interesting about the show was the way they combined thought-provoking ideas on technology and all different kinds of humor. This show really has something for everyone! Just trust me when I say DO NOT ARRIVE LATE. I won't go into detail but the humiliation will be mortifying for you and hilarious for everyone else.

“Fun for families with teenage boys!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

What fun! A highlight from our trip to Chicago. Our family laughed and truly enjoyed the show! There was a lot more humor than expected. Our teenage sons still talk about it weeks later.
At one point while the entire audience was standing I turned around in every direction and loved watching EVERYONE laughing and having fun together. Very unique and creative. All ages will enjoy!

“Blue man group show”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

its fantastic. The place, briar street theatre, has parking lot and has a lot of pictures and stuffs at the waiting room. We can order some drinks there and the waiter at the bar is very helpfull. The show is amazing, i have never seen something like that and some parts are really new, i havent seen anything similar in other shows. I was looking for some show and most of them start on wednesday. This one starts on tuesday and i loved it. There are some sites that give discounts online. I bought the ticket online and get the ticket at the theater.
