The show takes a closer look at the technology that both surrounds and isolates us, showcasing technogeek ingenuity while uniting the audience in primal, collective exhilaration. With no spoken language, Blue Man Group is perfect for people of all ages (5+), languages, and cultures. « less

I'm not sure how you can not have a great time seeing Blue Man Group. I have been to see the show 3 times now and am planning on taking the kiddos along next time. It is hilarious, exciting, and totally original. Music and theatrics are awesome too. Tips: Deals can be found on Groupon during the slower Fall, Winter,... More

Just myself and my spouse attended the show, however, this is one the entire family would enjoy! They keep you engaged and the length of time is perfect.

Having lived in the Chicago Area my entire life, I constantly hear ads about this show. I never had any urge to go see it - but Im glad I did. Went with spouse and two 12 year olds and everyone had a great time. Its loud, topical, fun and funny. The great time was set in motion by me... More

This is our 4th time seeing BMG in Chicago in addition to seeing the show in Vegas and their touring productions. First tip, make sure you get to the theater 30 minutes before showtime. Preferably 45 minutes so you have time to explore the lobby. We've been waiting for the time to bring our daughter to the show as the... More

Took my daughter for her first Blue Man Group show. It was my 5th time to the Briar Street Theatre to see them. The show hasn't changed much over the years but it is still entertaining. We were there on a Sunday evening and the theatre was a little over half full which was the smallest crowd I've seen there.... More

Our group of 6 ranged in age from 6 to 65 and we all loved this show! It was energetic and entertaining from beginning to end! When I asked my 6 year old granddaughter what her favorite part was, she responded "all of it!" The two hour show went by quickly and we were sorry to see it end. Very... More

It was my first time seeing the blue man group. I never knew it had comedy and I didn't know no one talked. But it was so entertaining and I would love to see it again with friends.

Our family went to see this show and we are so glad we went. It was very exciting, and fast moving. It kept you on your toes. It was interactive because at times they would come into the audience. They would come into the aisles and examine the faces of the audience, until they found the perfect one I guess.... More

We took our three children to see the show. We didn't know what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised. We chose the priciest seats and I'm glad we did. Not sure if we would have picked up on the facial nuances if we were far back or in the balcony. Parts of the show were a little cheesy and... More

I really enjoyed seeing Blue Man Group. It was entertaining. I recommend it for adults, and older children. I also loved the idea of adult beverages available. And it was nice to be able to get a picture with A Blue Man!
