BLUE MAN GROUP is a popular theatrical show in Chicago that has been called "visually stunning," "wildly inventive," and "hysterically funny." 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.

We went to see Blue Man Group and found it to be boring and definitely not worth the price. Not one of us liked the show and none of us, including my teenager, would ever recommend this activity to anyone. Way, way over rated. Should have bought fast passes or went to Cirque du soleil instead.

Fun creative entertainment for everyone. You can't help but forget your troubles wondering what they will do next. Main floor center better seating to really be a part of the action.

This is the 4th time I've seen the show within the last 12 years or so. It's always evolving with the times. It's great with friends, family and even little ones (maybe 5 & up would be best). Always fun, funny and inspiring:)

Fun, reasonable night out. Took my 10 year old-not sure I have ever heard him laugh so loud. He thoroughly enjoyed the show. I wasn't sure what to expect & was pleasantly surprised. We sat in the 6th row(?). Thought we might get covered in paint. It wasn't was messy as I envisioned. Great show!

I won't give away the show but will say that it is an excellent combination of creative, audio, visual and comedic performance. We were thoroughly entertained for the 90 minute performance. One suggestion is to take some ear plugs. If you forget, they gave us some when we entered and it helped. It really is a must see.

This was our first Blue Man Group experience and did not know what to expect. All in all it was fun, party, hilarious, weird, crazy, action filled - what else can I say. Amazing what emotions can be conveyed just through the eyes and expressions of three men. Stay out of the first 6 rows if you don't want to... More

This show is suitable for all ages. Lights, technology, music and paint used in a creative way by the mute performers. Different to any other show I have seen. If you have seats near the front you are provided with plastic capes. Small bar area. We took subway and then 10-15min walk.

Blueman is just fun. Plain and simple. The theater is small so there are really no bad seats. The guys are funny and never say a word. If you want to laugh for an hour and a half..... Go You can also get cocktails there
