Saw the Blue Man Group on a recent trip to Chicago. This was like my 5th or 6th time seeing the 'show' but my first time seeing it in Chicago - the rest has all been in Vegas. The venue is smaller than Vegas, so the show is a little different, but there are some similarities. The venue was a... More

I feel like I'm the only one on planet earth who hasn't seen this show! Practically everyone I know saw it 10+ years ago. Well today was the day. I can't say I was disappointed exactly, but it was just okay. I've heard so many people describe it as "unbelievable" and "indescribable" and "amazing" but I didn't feel that way.... More

I don't think I've ever had this much visual stimulation. It's a good thing we saw a matinee since I needed several hours to become settled after the performance. Really really enjoyed it, but it was intense. Definitely would have been too much stimulation for my younger kids, but the teenagers loved it. Can't describe it but it was so... More

Fun and lively show to see. The show kept us entertained from the very beginning. The show was a straight 90minutes of fun. After the show the blue men were out in the lobby for pictures.

Nothing like I've seen before or will see. The show revolves around three very strange blue characters with audience participation. Lots of fun.

We really enjoyed the whole experience. The theater is definately on the small side making the whole experience seem very intimate (no real bad seats). There were lots of laughs, light shows, magic and great music! Really, the music and the live band were the highlight for me. It was as if I was at a rock concert with these... More

Perhaps I am of a different generation. Maybe young at heart isn't enough. Perhaps I should have taken our grandson with me. My best recommendation is to sit as close to the front as possible to appreciate the facial expressions. Remember though that those in the first few rows will be given ponchos. It is a ninety-minute show that it... More

Just saw Blue Man group for the first time on January 3, 2016 for the 1:00 p.m. show. We sat front row, poncho seats. It was a great show, with a bunch of laughs. Highly Recommend.

Fun show! I took my 17 year old son and we both had a great time. I was worried as our seats were just behind the splash zone but we were fine.

I bought my husband tickets to see BMG for Christmas. He has been wanting to go for years, so I surprised him with a trip into Chicago with a group of friends. Only 1 of the 8 of us had ever seen the show and it had been 15 years for him. We sat in the 5th row, which is... More
