Description

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.

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.

Max Quantity of tickets purchased per transaction is 9. Please contact the theatre directly for any groups larger than 9.

Miscellaneous

We purchased tickets to the Blue Man Show thru Expedia... We thought Expedia was a reputable company... They sold us tickets to a show that was cancelled a month prior to our purchasing our tickets... We incurred out of state expenses to get to the show (that are not refundable) and had a difficult time getting the refund for the tickets... Took 4 calls...very long calls...there are reliable companies out there just best advice is not to use Expedia!

Nothing much to point out as innovative or truly funny. The food routines are nothing special. The drum routines are perhaps the best part. They do try to engage the audience but not really anything special there either. The overall experience wasn't much to get excited about but I will say a couple of people in our group liked it more than I did.

It was very entertaining. We went as a large group and chose to sit in the splash zone. I wouldn't choose those seats again but the kids loved it.

The fun part of this group is that they get the audience involved. Whether it is handing out freshly painted masterpieces, walking through the audience, or simply getting everyone off their feet to dance, The Blue Man Group is fun for all ages.
