I wasn't sure what to expect. Anyone who had already been there wouldn't tell me anything except I had to see for myself. It was fun and funny - except for a couple of skits. We decided the "random" choice of audience members was probably pre-planned and not random at all. We could tell the girl chosen that night knew... More

I have been to many shows but this is the first of its kind. Unusual to say the least. Be prepared for heavy audience participation. The 1 hour and 45 min seemed like 10 min. It's fast paced and very fun.

I would have said that most of the audience were regulars, and had seen the group more than once – which goes to show the popularity and solid fan base. We saw a show in Berlin about five years ago and enjoyed it. This show was also good, had some of the same key elements, but still enough variety and... More

The show certainly surprised me! It was unlike any other I have ever seen! It is interactive and, at the same time, makes us think about human behavior!

We've seen Blue Man Group twice now in Chicago. Once in 2009, and then just last night, 1/10/15, both at The Briar Street Theater. We are a couple with 3 teen boys. We loved the first show as it was like nothing we had ever seen.The Briar Street Theater is very old and small and seats 652. There is a... More

My family went to see BMG on 01/01, we had front row and it was amazing. They are geniuses in this production. My daughter was given a painting made by BMG during the beginning usint the percussions of the drums.

This show is so amazing - the tricks they do, the music, and the silent skits are so funny. This show has been running at the Briar Street Theater for almost 20 years, and this is the second time we have seen it - the first time was about 10 years earlier. They had completely changed their routines, so it... More

I have seen the old show several times and this was the first time at the new show. The show was as fun as always. Always a great time.

Every seat is awesome, show is a beat a minute, fast, energetic and gets everyone in the audience in the best mood. No one can accurately describe Blue Man Group its an experience and every person in the audience comes away with a different amazing experience! Make sure to stop in the bathroom and don't miss the "bathroom song"!!!
