So how long have these Blue Men been at this gig? We finally decided to check them out and were glad we did. While it wasn't the absolute best, totally mind-blowing thing we've ever seen in our lives, it was an enjoyable couple hours of entertainment which had some mind-blowing moments. The theater isn't all that big, so you don't... More

young or old all love the music and cool actions of this group. Stay in the back if you don't want to get a bit wet. You just don't know what they will do next so it keeps your attention.

Very fun event for kids and adults (at least those who aren't stodgy or straight-laced). If you don't mind the mess (although you do get a poncho to save your clothes), the first few rows would be for you. We were back 20 rows and that was just fine by me. Whether your kids are 5 or 20, they will... More

If your on the fence about going up to the Briar theater in Lincoln Park, get off it and go. I know that tickets are a little high, don't be fooled by the sales guy telling you some seats have a restricted view. Your simply sitting at a higher level, but it's an intimate theater and you'll have a great... More

This was our second time watching the show. The first one we watched was in Orlando and obviously we liked and this time we took out mother with us. Unfortunately the show was not up to the expectations of the first one, it was shorter and just not funny. That was a bummer!!!

Enjoyed it but not overwhelmed. May be worth doing once but I would not go again. Acts are more for kids and teens. Only been to Chicago one, may be the Vegas one is better but I think I am fine.

This show was amazing and worth every penny. I went with my two sons, they have been wanting to see the Blue Man group forever. Tickets in the beginning, I thought was expensive but after the show, I felt it was worth every penny. It was an amazing, highly entertaining, family friendly, audience participating show. You have to go early... More

Me and my husband went during a short weekend visit to Chicago. We had the best time. First time seeing this show for both of us. It was so much fun. We laughed, sang, clapped and danced. Very good entertainment. Nice small theater so every seat is great.

Paid half price for tickets. Would not advise paying more. Show was clever and well-done. Audience participation segments were the best. But the show felt stale and wrote. And many numbers were repetitive.

Always wanted to see them in person. While in Chicago for CCIM, we made time to make a show. Well worth the time and money to see.
