Very enjoyable evening. This was all of our first times going to BMG. Overall worth the price, we were seated just behind the poncho zone. I don't thing there are bad seats in the smallish theater. Would recommend it for Tweens and up, really small kids might find it a bit loud/scary.

So, I wasn't prepared for what to expect with guys with blue color make-up...I had heard it was good but had no idea that this was SO GOOD. For the uninitiated, this show is .... like a comedy show with music. Starts off with some very neat tricks that must have taken hours of practice to master and then the... More

My friends and I went to the show expecting it to be hilarious....it was not. I also expected more drumming and music. I enjoyed the show but it was less than I expected and not really worth the high ticket price.

Was a quite nice show, which started very very well, but then it finished a little bit disappointing; i had expected more of it per total, but actually it was something different! Worth to see it i guess!

If you've never seen this show before, please go. Very inventive, clever and creative. There is a very "tight" trio of musicians who support the show who are very, very good. If it's been a while since you've seen, they have refined/refreshed it. This show works for all ages. It's just 90 minutes plus of laughs fun. After the show,... More

This was an unexpected good time. Never having seen a performance before, I did not know what to expect, but oh my! A fun filled performance with not a word spoken by the performers. The humor was exceptional, and best of all, NO foul language!! They are coming to my city in the spring, and it is on my "to... More

Not because I had low expectations. Just didn't realize it would be this good. Now, there are plays or performance art that may be of a higher quality but for what it is and how much you pay, this is a rare 5 dots for me. It was funny in both subtle, thought provoking and slapstick ways. It had lots... More

This is the second time I have seen these guys in Chicago (also once in Las Vegas). I love this show. We were sitting 3 rows behind the people with rain gear & still got plastered with some of the goop (I was later told it is mashed up bananas). These guys are hilarious, there is some LOUD music, a... More

If you have never been to BMG, then it would be new to you and I would suggest seeing it. However, if you have been there before...Went to the BMG about 10 years ago. Most of the show seemed the same. Like the marshmallow sculpture, Captain crunch, and twinkie bits. The musicians are talented as are the Blue Men themselves.... More

Even though my husband LOVES this show & we've seen it multiple times, I still find it hilarious. It is worth seeing. I like how they use everyday common items to make people laugh. Good family show. Adults will like it , too!
