Really great 1.5 hour show. I had not seen them before at any venue so it was all new to me. The silent comedy is hilarious. I'm not sure I would go back unless someone else really wanted to go. Tickets slightly pricey (bought normal on Ticketmaster, no coupons/deals).

The Blue Man group in Chicago is a must see. The show is amazing, the musicians are excellent and they really like to get the audience involved. The show is great for kids, teens and adults. I loved the audience involvement and my husband and I even got to have a little part in the show.

Fantastic show with some very talented people. I loved the smaller venue - there can't be a bad seat in the house. The only bummer was the attitude of the staff. Rather snarky guy behind the souvenir counter; it looked like he was attempting to make his co-worker laugh, but just came off as snarky. Also, the musicians, who are... More

The ticket deal I got was half off for center row seats (outside of the poncho area), I should note that even if you sat up in front, based on what I witnessed - they did not shoot an indefinitely amount of stuff at you and for maybe 5 minutes of the 130 minute show may you actually find certain...

A lot of talks about it. It was interesting to see what all of these talks are about. I won't go the second time.

The price may be high but I don't think its higher then any other sort of theater production. Just bite the bullet and spend the money and enjoy the show! It has great crowd interaction and is just overall entertaining. This is something I think every age range could enjoy! We sat in the area where you have to wear... More

Briar Street Theater is in the Lakeview neighborhood here at Clark, south of Belmont. (Yes, you heard the reference in the BNL song). We went one NYE a few years back. My 16 year old niece was in town and I bucked the traditional theater trend and went with Blue Man Group. She and her friend loved it. My husband... More
