I heard that it was an amazing show, but it surpassed my already high expectations. From the moment you walk in to the theater lobby, it is a visual feast. The show was hilarious and I never knew what to expect next. Wacky, musical, comical, energetic, and participatory. My 3 kids and I agreed that it was hands-down the highlight... More

I've seen Blue man group a couple of times in the past in Vegas and NY and I just got dragged along with some friends that have never seen the show. I did like that the show was changed from what i saw in the past, but the show overall is the same. Get in the front rows if possible,... More

The theatrics combined with light and high technology effects are way too cool. Really a must see for everyone. Something different to watch and experience.

Loved this show. Great music, great drumming with the funny entertaining blue men. Great show for adults and children. I don't think paying extra for the first 4 rows is worth it. The people didn't get much of anything on them, except a few people on the front row. Not to mention that the first 5 rows are flat floor.... More

So good! OMG!! This show was so excellent, so very well done, so impressive, so much FUN to watch, I didn't want it to end! But it did end, sadly, but not before I was laughing so hard I was crying! The finale is so hilarious with all the paper that comes at you (we were in the front row).... More

We managed to get student rush tickets just half an hour before the performance and are so glad we did. Unsure what to expect but the blue man group is an hour and 45 minutes of interactive percussion comedy with some audience participation that works brilliantly without being cringey. Everyone in the house was laughing out loud, from older couples... More

We travelled from Canada to Chicago and I must say this show is fantastic!!!!! great performers and music.... front staff and parking lot was very welcoming, my wife was chosen from the audience to participate during the show creating an amazing memory of our 2014 road trip to Chicago. Would definitely go back!

My husband and I went to the 5PM Sat. Evening show. We were highly entertained but expected more of a "percussion" show. There was lots of audience participation and we know it would be a fun show for families. The first five rows in the main seating area were the "splash zone" and the first four rows on the sides....

If you have not seen the BMG, I would highly recommend doing so. If this were my first review of them, I would be giving them 5 stars. Having seen them a number of years back with my family, we decided to see them again. We all had a good time and agreed that while still very entertaining, BMG needed... More
