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.

We liked our seats in the M row - close enough to see well, yet not requiring the plastic ponchos in the front. It lasts just shy of 1:45. They could edit the length of the some of the audience participation elements that dragged just a little. But overall, we laughed and had loads of fun. We did not have... More

We splurged for front row seats and were thankful or the plastic ponchos they gave us which only did a marginal job of keeping the banana bits out of our hair and clothing. The show was fun and perfect for families. It was my second time seeing it and they had changed just enough since the last time to keep... More

First time to a BMG show, the family enjoyed it. Show moves quickly, is humorous and the audience participates. We sat in the "splash" zone (2nd row) but did not get splattered with too much. The Briar street theater is a good venue for the show and it has some good eats in the neighborhood. The "L" stop (Belmont on... More

My second Blueman group show (first saw them in Toronto 15 years ago) and still highly entertaining. We took our 12, 9, 7 your old kids with us this time and they all thought it was an "amazing" show. What I like about the Blueman group is that it always makes you think and the show is stimulating ALL your... More

It was a great show, it’s a combination of technology and different kinds of humor a kind of provocative. The show was really surprising, and better not be late  you have “a humiliation show”.

We visited Chicago over ten years ago and saw The Blue Men at Briar theater location then. We returned with our ten year old . We were just as enthralled this time. New to us performance, with interactive audience participation kept our son in AWE. GREAT SHOW.

We love BMG. I think the show is getting a little old. We saw them in VEGAS many years ago and the show isn't as fascinating now as it was then. With that said, though, if you go to Chicago, you shouldn't miss this iconic group. Use the coupon in the back of the CityPass for great seats.

Seeing the Blue Man Group was a really great experience. The show was all that I expected and a ton more. What I thought was really interesting about the show was the way they combined thought-provoking ideas on technology and all different kinds of humor. This show really has something for everyone! Just trust me when I say DO NOT... More

What fun! A highlight from our trip to Chicago. Our family laughed and truly enjoyed the show! There was a lot more humor than expected. Our teenage sons still talk about it weeks later. At one point while the entire audience was standing I turned around in every direction and loved watching EVERYONE laughing and having fun together. Very unique... More
