To say that the bald, brilliant, and hilarious Blue Man Group marches to the beat of their own drum is an understatement. This loud, bright, and over-the-top show filled with technology, sensory theatrics, comedy, music, and hijinks is the perfect form of entertainment for the entire family. To truly understand the hype over the Blue Man Group, you have to see it for yourself!


from Blue Man Group
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.

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.

We attended a Sunday afternoon show and really enjoyed it. The only reason that I don't give it 5-stars is because I felt like it was more targeted to kids. The show was great, though, and had I attended with a child rather than another adult, it would be 5-stars all the way. Aspects that are totally worthy of 5-stars, regardless: there was a ton of talent and energy on the stage, including the three Blue Men performers and the musicians who were flawless in a supporting and integral role. Kudos to all six because they were spot on. There was quite a bit of audience interaction and the Blue Men were very engaged with the audience. All of the staff, from the box office to the gift shop folks, to the ushers who doubled in other roles were friendly and welcoming. Performer timing was impeccable. The show lasted just over 90m and I didn't check my watch once. Good show for the young-at-heart and great show for those who are just plain young.

If you have nothing better to do, yes this fits the bill. I've been to Cirques, Vegas venues and this was a bit boring and nothing was really that creative. The only part I liked was the giant balls that the audience stood up for and volleyed around. We were a group of 4 women from 50-20s.
