Great experience with my 8 year old, at first I was a bit apprehensive to take him, wasn't sure it was appropriate. But after reading the reviews on multiple sites, I took a chance and took my son to see the show since we were in Vegas for a few days. All I can say is that it was Woww!!... More

Awesome show! It's even somewhat family friendly :). We've heard great things about the show so my husband and I went with another couple. Our kids are 6 & 9 and I'd love to take them next time. The theater is small so any seat is a good one.

Had so much fun going to this show. I went with a co-worker and my boss and ended up getting pulled on the stage. I have a fear of people with mask on so at first it was hard to watch them much less them touching me but in the end I found myself able to let loose and have... More

My friend and I took our granddaughters to Chicago for several days (8-11 years old). Because of when we went, live theatre type entertainment was limited and we chose the Blue Man Group. The girls LOVED this and all said this was the highlight of the trip. My friend and I had the same opinion. This is a great family... More

We sat on stage left in the poncho section and did not know what to expect with this show. There seems to not be a bad seat in the house. It was very interesting and so much fun! I was worried about getting paint in my hair, but we did not get anything on our ponchos at all. I would... More

We went as a group from work from Tennessee. I have never laughed so hard. The music was loud and the lights were very strobe like but I loved it. The ending was a surprise and I won't spoil it but it was very unexpected. The group sometimes comes to Knoxville TN and I want to go again. Don't miss... More

I wasn't sure I would enjoy this show as much as I did! It was an awesome theatrical experience. Visually, like nothing I've seen before. I didn't read too many reviews a head of time, but from everyone I had ever talked to that went and saw it, they loved it. Now I see why. It's very funny. I was... More

At first I thought it might be better for younger kids, but there were a lot of adults there alone and my teen loved it. Unique nothing you have seen before.

I was looking for something memorable for our first family trip to Chicago and this was a home run. Our children are 9 and 8 and, like many kids, find it difficult to sit through traditional musicals - but with this they were transfixed. It wonderfully combined visual and rhythmic entertainment with witty social commentary. We all came out having... More

I want to go back again! The show is just laugh, laugh, laugh! The good news for me was that the Briar Street Theater is handicapped accessible. Also, these people really have a good time making sure you have a good time. There is some parking right beside the building, to the south. There is also parking on the street... More
