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.

I've seen the Blue Man Group twice at the Briar Street Theatre in Chicago. The show was entertaining both times. The theatre is small, but not too small. I would go to this location to see the BMG again.

Took my daughters here as a last minute thing. I'd been to the show many years before but never with my girls. They were in awe and that alone was probably worth it. But add in the show and this is an incredible experience. The drummer in the house band is a maniac rocking the kit and is awesome to... More

We took our two grandsons (ages 11 & 12) on a Saturday afternoon show (2pm). First let me say the music rocked! The house band is fantastic. The show itself is so fun and we enjoyed our seats in center row G. The show is a sensory overload (in a good way) of music , visual and fun. The kids... More

My husband and I have been wanting to see this show for years and finally decided to go to celebrate our anniversary. We had been told by everyone that we knew that had seen the show before that we would love it and we were not disappointed. It's a funny, fast moving show with a fair amount of audience participation.... More

We saw the Blue Man Group while on a school trip. It was in a word, AWESOME!!! We saw them in Chicago and it was a small venue which was great because there were no bad seats. One of our group even got selected to go onstage, he was so excited, it is a shame they do not allow photos.... More

Brought my daughter for her 13th birthday and sat 2nd row center stage. Yeah it's funny you get a poncho and stuff squirted at you but you do loose some of your view sitting so close, the best seats for this show are middle theater so you can take everything in. There's a lot to take in! I have seen... More

We went with two younger kids (6&9)...they had a blast. Wife and I went about 10 years ago and some things were the same but a lot of new things made it enjoyable. Not a bad seat in the house so i would not pay for poncho seats especially with small kids since seats in front are not elevated. Great... More

I never thought I'd go to such a show, but it was really quite something. Well worth visiting. Just don't sit too close to the front or you might get splashed with paint!

Saw Blue Man Group from the front row. The show is hilarious and its a great time! The actors were really impressive. It exceeded my expectations. Did the meet and greet after the show and it was apparent that the cast really enjoys what they do and are proud to be apart of it. The drummer was impressive, he had... More

I wasn't sure what to expect. Anyone who had already been there wouldn't tell me anything except I had to see for myself. It was fun and funny - except for a couple of skits. We decided the "random" choice of audience members was probably pre-planned and not random at all. We could tell the girl chosen that night knew... More
