Both in our mid-20's, my boyfriend and I went to the Blue Man Group while on a weekend vacation in Boston. We had both been when we were little, so we were excited to see if it had changed at all and if it would still be entertaining now that we were older. All of our expectations were met. We... More

I take my daughter to the show the Saturday after Christmas every year. Book your parking in advance online at Stuart Street Garage for $10. Best parking deal in Boston, plus you know you have a reserved spot 2 blocks from the show. Very safe area (theater district). The playhouse itself is very small. There are no bad seats, so... More

We have watched this show about 7 times through the years and loved each one of them. This time was no exception. We sat at the front area, the "poncho" zone and although there is the potential of getting a bit splashed from the stage happenings, we were totally safe. The only minus is that there is no coat check... More

***Upfront warning*** If you are prone to seizures or have a child who is sensitive to loud noises and flashing lights, this is not a good show for you. These happen throughout the show. The theater is small, so it could be difficult to get out if a reaction begins to happen. This show was fun and funny the whole... More

This is a must see show! The theater is made for this show and there isn't a bad seat in the house. Less chance of being sought out if you sit in the balcony. We have seen the Blueman group here and at Universal and neither show will disappoint ever. We laugh the entire time. The entertainment can't be beat.... More

We went having no clue what to expect but living in Boston for almost 30 years and not having seen it, we finally satisfied our curiosity. The show is across between performance art, watered down rock music, and comedy. I think it's best attended with a large group of friends who have had a few drinks before they go in.... More

Two hours of pure entertainment. Most of the show was very weird, yet oddly entertaining. The end is what makes it - I won't ruin anything but it is definitely worth seeing! Stop in early before the show and have a drink in the lounge. After the show the Blue Men go into the lounge areas for photos, so don't... More

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.
