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.

My wife and I attended the show at Briar Street Theatre last Saturday night. Living in the NW Burbs we had heard about it for years but had never gone. Now that we finally went, we are wishing we hadn't waited so long. It is most definitively a "one of a kind" show that has elements of great percussionism and musicianship, comedy, stimulating colors and lights, and audience interaction/participation. The cast is excellent - amazing how much they can communicate to the audience without ever uttering a single spoken word. Truly talented individuals..... I would say we went expecting to see a performance and instead found ourselves having an experience. The time flew by because we couldn't wait to see what strange thing was going to happen next. We will be 100% for sure be back, next time with our sons. Blue Man Group is must see entertainment and a lot of laughs, bravo!

We went to Chicago for a last-minute getaway. We were lucky to find tickets for blue man group on a Saturday night I had heard of them but wasn't even really sure what to expect. The show was incredible. Fantastic musical talent. I love drums and these guys could play them! It was funny and they captivated and involved the audience. The show was like nothing I've ever seen. My husband and I talked about it for a week. I will definitely see them again. It was a very mixed age crowd. 20's to elderly. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. They give out ponchos for people sitting in front. I won't give out spoilers but You could get a little stuff on you. Not a lot. I will try to get seats in the front next time and I'm in my mid 50's. SO MUCH FUN!

As advertised, this is an entertaining, 90-minute variety show. There is audience involvement if you are near the front or on the aisles. The music can be ear-damaging loud so they offer ear plugs. Take advantage of the offer and you will still hear everything without harming your hearing. The Halsted CMTA #8 bus provides a good, quick ride back to the West Loop hotels and restaurants.

Family with two hard to impress teenagers loved this! Worth every penny when both teenagers were laughing and participating. We went with sister and her family and had way more fun than anticipated.
