I've been meaning to see this show for years, on several trips to Las Vegas. I'm glad, however, that we finally experienced it in such a small theatre, as you feel thoroughly engaged all the way through. The two hours simply flew by, for both of us, and I agree with other reviewers in respect of the content and performance.... More

Not what I thought it was going to be. High cost $98.00 for 5th row seats..not allowed to bring in to building any food or drink but they had told us where to go get supper and we bought it back to eat but ended up not allowed inside..Enjoyed the music part but really had no idea about this performance...

One of the highlights of our trip to Boston....a great night out. Clever ideas, skilful performances, mesmerising, messy and a really good laugh. I recommend that you buy tickets at the Bostix booth in Copley Sq.

I went to see this with my mum and had an amazing experience. It was entertaining and engaging all the way through with several surprises. Such a thrilling experience you should not miss out on. I saw this at the Charles playhouse theatre - I liked the layout, you can sit anywhere and yet still be close to the stage... More

I saw them 15 years ago. Lots of percussion. Great. Then today in the small Charles Play House in Boston. Good show, great energy. Not enough percussion tho.

My son had seen this group on the west coast four years ago and really liked them. We were visiting Boston so I took him to see them again. We both had a great time and we're thankful for the ponchos to protect us from all the mess! This is not your average entertainment and if you like "proper" events,... More

Good show! Not a bad seat in the house. Laughed the entire time. Even my 6 year old loved it! Highly recommend!

I hadn't seen any show of the Blue Man Group before, but it blown me away. I was expecting percussion, but it is so much more. Charles Playhouse has hard to find, but it is a small theater with a warm atmosphere. Normal tickets are rather expensive, so look for deals at, for example, Goldstar. Or watch Twitter when student... More

Well, we had no idea what was going to happen. Our son was taken from the audience and took part in the show and got absolutely covered in blue paint, My wife was having kittens. I could not beleve what was going on. The skill of the artists was second to none. Take your eye off the ball for one... More

I didnt really know what to expect..blue men and music.. it was so much more! They never spoke and everything was communicated via eyes or gesture in a world where words are over used this take on updated mime was incredible. The music and humour was as impressive throughout the 1 hour and 40mins non stop show. The theatre was... More
