My wife and I went to a show before we had kids and really enjoyed it and have been wanting to get back. Our kids are now 7 and 9 and took them last week. It is energetic and alot of fun. A few jokes were somewhat questionable for the kids, but not bad and they flow over their heads.... More

It's only about 20 minutes from downtown Chicago. It was interactive show that makes you dance, scream and clap. It's a show for the whole family.

It was an interesting performance. Some of it very visually arresting and some of it just odd (chewing up twinkies and having it squirt out their chests onto a table and eating it again). The music was very loud. The front rows could get splashed, although they didn't in our group.

In our opinion, the activity leaves alot to be desired. Cheesy stunts with audience participation. If and only if you can get in for half price would I recommend it..if its on your bucket list. Mildly entertaining. All cash bar before the show starts probably is why some were having much fun.

We saw the show on a Wednesday night. Myself, my Mom and my three kids ages 16, 14 and 10. I don't know why but I had it in my head that it would be mostly drumming and music when in fact it was a lot of comedy and skits. We definitely had some good laughs. My 16 yr old... More

When we arrived in Chicago we saw an ad from BMG on the side of a van and decided on a whim to check it out. We enjoyed the show, but were somewhat surprised to find that the show had barely changed since when we saw BMG for the first time in New York about four or five years ago.... More

My family and I went to a Sunday afternoon show of the Blue Man Group. We enjoyed every minute of it from start to finish. We were celebrating my daughters 13th Birthday and had a wonderful time. Cant wait to go again!

BMG was a great show! The theatre is smaller and located about 5 miles from direct downtown. We used Uber as transportation between hotel and theatre with no trouble. Since the theatre is small, all seats are great ones. If you choose the balcony, you will be turning your head slightly to see the stage. There is only one row... More
