“Family Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We took our three children ages 10, 10 and 12 to see the Blue Man Group last night. My husband has wanted to see the show for years. I am so glad we went with the kids. It is a really fun show and very family friendly. There was some inuendo, but nothing that was really obnoxious. It was great fun and a great way to introduce them to performance art. My husband and I enjoyed the show as well. We were as into the "splash zone" experience as the younger crowd, but enjoyed the various skits and the overall performance. The great thing was the group coming out for autographs and pictures after the performance. My daughter even got a face print from one of the guys and another drew an electronic picture on her kindle. It was a great family experience.

“Good Show to go to Once”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We were looking for good family friendly type of show or play to do over the Christmass week. So we decided to try one of the Blue Man shows. We got tickets for the show in Boston. Teh Blue Man group performs at teh Charles playhouse which is not on teh main theathre street but actually a small side dtreet that looks more like an ally way. There is no parkign directly at the theater but plently of parkign within a short block so at most a 5 minute walk. The playhouse itself is a little old a tired. We arrived a little early and you can sit at the lounge area until the doors open which is about 30 minutes prior to the show. In the lounge you can buy bar drinks and beer along with soft drinks, candy, bags of popcorn and pretzel while you wait. you can take the items up with you to the show. when the doors opened we went to our seat which was in the front row of the balcony. We actual liked these seats over the ones in main floor you can get a good perspective of the stage and they are the same price as some of the back seating on the main floor. I won't go into to much details of the show so not to spoil it but i will say there were a couple of parts that seemed a little slow but overall it was fun and we had a good time and glad we went. With that in mind I think the price for the tickets were a little high considering that the venue and the stage were very basic and looked more like some thing from a old high school auditorium. So overall i would recommend going once but not sure if we would go again.

“What the ####”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Having gone to one of these shows, we still can't figure out what it is all about. To us it is madness disguised as entertainment - we did not enjoy it and we question why anyone would - even though the show gets rave reviews.

“Good show to take people from out of town to”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

Great show. But they could mix it up more and add newer stuff every few years to keep it fresh. Overall the show is worth it at least once. Or when you have out of town guests. I went once, and enjoyed it.
