Description

from Blue Man Group Chicago
Blue Man Group, one of Chicago's longest-running shows, is a unique audiovisual experience—vibrant, colorful, and hilarious. Family-friendly and fabulously blue, this critically acclaimed show features innovative music and technology combined with good-humored social commentary.

Find your seat after you’ve admired the black-light artwork and intimate setting of the Briar Street Theatre, and prepare for the rise of the curtain. Fueled by our culture's technological advances, this recently revamped show incorporates the ‘GiPad,’ a giant tablet that communicates with the silent trio.

Three bald, blue men lead you through a captivating multimedia journey filled with euphoric drumming, neon lighting, and paint splattering. Gladly follow them from the funny and intelligent, to the riveting and thought provoking. Equal parts innovative musical performance, and introspective peeks into our fast-paced philosophies, Blue Man Group celebrates culture, comedy, and, of course, the color blue.

Parking
Limited Parking is available for $15.00 in our lot. We recommend that the patron arrive at least one half hour before curtain to ensure a spot.

Children Rules
Children under 3 are not permitted in the theatre. All children must have a ticket. All children under 9 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Blue Man Group has moments when it reaches noise levels of a rock concert. It is strongly encouraged that you use ear plugs on your child. Ear plugs can be provided to you at the theatre by our front of house staff. Strobes and water based haze are used in the show. Out of respect for other patrons unruly children may be asked to leave the theatre and will only be admitted back into the theatre at the Front of House Manager’s discretion.

Maximum Quantity of tickets purchased per party is 9. Please contact the theatre directly for any groups of 10 or more. Orders under the same name for 10 or more purchased on this site will not be a valid reservation.

Miscellaneous
WARNING! A STROBE LIGHT IS USED DURING THE PERFORMANCE AND MAY BE CONSIDERED HAZARDOUS TO CERTAIN PATRONS.

Sensory show. 3 blue men that don’t talk is actually very entertaining. Looking for a show while in Chicago, and decided we should see Blue Man Group since it is so popular. I would like to see the “Vegas” version. Show is worth seeing. Briar Street Theatre is very nice. We like the small theaters.

Disgusting, revolting and a health hazard. Better entertainment comes from the rear of a cow with diarrhea. Save your money and ask a 6th grader to vomit on you. Very boring performance - had to leave after 20 minutes because it was so bad. The performers fail to reach mediocrity. I've heard better drumming from a street corner. What a true waste of time. If I could give negative stars, I would. SAVE YOUR MONEY and DO SOMETHING ELSE. THIS SHOW is a WASTE of TIME and MONEY.

"Unique entertainment"

I had not heard of the Blue Man Group before I saw the show. So no expectations there. The theater is small, so any seat will be good. Lots of kids that day. Ponchos are given to those seated in front. The show is unique, with lights, music and comedy. Be warned though that strobe lights are used. Some people might get headaches or dizziness with such effects. All in all, a very entertaining show. After the show, linger a bit in the bar area so you can have a photo taken with the Blue Men.

"Awesome salvation of a rainy Saturday in Chicago"

We had a all-day rainy Saturday on our visit to Chicago. After considering several options, Blue Man Group was selected for the afternoons entertainment. Our group included 2 pre-teen grandsons, parents and grandparents. We ALL had a blast. It's not a cheap date, but certainly was a fun date. Great percussion, backup band, over the top comedy fun and pranks.
