It’s hard to describe the Blue Man Group. It’s a show that awakens your senses and wows your imagination. The creativity and sheer genius pf the performance leaves you a smile that engulfs your face.
The show runs about 100 minutes with no intermission and rotates from audience participation bits to impressive musical sequences with seemingly ordinary objects. There are no words spoken, yet the 3 Blue Men have no problem communicating loud and clear with the audience.
There is a fair amount of audience participation required, so be ready to shout and even get up and dance. You’re in for a fun night filled with bright lights, laughs, and beautiful art. That’s perhaps the best way to describe the Blue Man Group. It’s a live art installation with a side of The Three Stooges – yet wittier than traditional slapstick humor. It’s a rock concert with a side of comedy.
From playing the ever-loved “Free Bird” to highlighting the absurd obsession our society has with texting through an act with GiPads (door-sized electric tablets), all of the acts make for a truly memorable experience. The most incredible part of the show, however, is the finale. The last act is so grand and epic that you’ll be left speechless. It’s a intense delight for your senses, and a moment that you’ll remember vividly long after you’ve left the theatre.
If you have seen the Blue Man Group yet, now is your perfect opportunity. The Blue Man Group is playing at the Fox Theatre now though this Sunday, January 20th! Pick up your tickets here!
