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!

We didn't know what to expect going in, but we both enjoyed ourselves. Much more humor than we thought there would be.

If you only have time to do one thing, make it Blue Man Group. You'll laugh, you'll cry (from all the laughing) and you'll have the best time. A great variety show, perfect for all ages.

This trip to Chicago was my first experience seeing the Blue Man Group. It exceeded my expectations. They were able to keep me entertained from before they came on stage all the way through the finally. Our seats were purchased a few days before the show so we were toards the back, but the view was still good. They even... More

From the beginning to the end the show was amazing and consistent. I love the way the guys connected with the audience. At one point I felt like we were at a club it was awesome.

This was the second time we went. The show had changed and it was still good. I think the unknown of the first time makes it a bit better but this was still fun. We had front row center seats this time. If you want to sit in the poncho section, I would recommend a the 3rd or 4th row.... More

We read the reviews, and it sounded great. Was not as awesome as expected, and quite expensive. but it was very interesting and entertaining.

The theater was large but only had about 500 seats so it was a nice small crowd. The actors are really good and the few things that are different are better. I have been to the orlando show and this one was better. the outside of the theater really blends in. When your in the lobby area listen for the... More
