The wildly popular show at the Astor Place Theatre now combines signature BLUE MAN GROUP moments with breathtakingly fun new pieces. It makes for an awesome evening of entertainment.

“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2014

Small theater, but big performance! We were entertained by the up close and personal performance experience. Very creative, interacted well with audience. Can see why this show has been around since 1991. Really enjoyed the 3 musicians in the caged platform.

“Perfect Show for Teen/Tween Boys.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

We all laughed out loud during this show but it was ideal for my 11 and 13 year old boys. The 13 year-old says it was the favorite part of the whole trip (and we did every touristy thing imaginable!). It is off-Broadway, downtown in the Astor Place theater but an easy cab ride from Times Square.

“Weird and Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2014

The weirdest show I've ever been to, really enjoyed it but not sure how to describe the show, but worth seeing!

“Slightly amusing, but not all that interesting.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2014

The actors worked hard, which we appreciated it, but the show simply was not all that entertaining. My daughter treated the family to the show during our visit to NYC from California. It happened to be my wife's birthday, and some how she was pulled form the audience and performed with the group on the stage. We had a good laugh at her expense. If it was't for my wife's contribution to the show, it would have been a 2-star rating. It's okay to see it if you have not seen it before, but I won't recommend a second visit. We went to the Sunday evening show and found a parking space directly in front of the theater, so that was the lone highlight for the night.

“Brilliant show!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2014

Definitely worth seeing! The theater was a little downtown but Taxi was cheap enough from Times Square. You get a little wet in the front seats :)
