I had never seen Blue Man Group but always heard how great they were. I didn't really know what to expect other than I knew they played on oil drums? Well while in Chicago YOU MUST GO SEE THEM! Blue Man Group is SO MUCH...More

I had seen the Blue Man Group in Las Vegas about 6 years ago and was entertained- but it was not memorable. Took my kids last night and even before the show started, we were laughing hysterically with the messaging that became audience interactive (through...More

Our kids 12 and 14 loved it. Great interactive show. I bought tickets on Groupon for 54$ a piece and ended up about ten rows from the stage in the center. 90 minutes went by in what felt like minutes. With the show was longer.

Amazing talent, just used in a bad way. I saw the show with my 14 year old daughter, thinking that this would be a fun drum concert. They did some drumming, but mostly stupid games. I believe that this would be better enjoyed by younger...More

This was my 2nd time seeing the Blue Man Group! I saw them in Boston years ago and they never disappoint. Always unexpected, always shocking, always something new. Funny, entertaining. I'm a solo traveler so I seek stuff like this.

We had GREAT seats 3 rows back from Splash Zone. We could see everything very well but I wasn’t real crazy about the Show. It was a little Boring for $90.00 a seat.

It’s difficult to explain exactly what BMG is/does without giving away part of the fun. It’s music and theater and comedy and more. Totally original. I’d recommend this show to anyone.

Interesting, a fun concept – overall, I think it’s a great performance for children. I liked it – wouldn’t say I loved it and seeing it once was enough. There were some creative and funny segments but some wore a little thin for me. If...More
