Owner description: BLUE MAN GROUP is a popular theatrical show in Chicago that has been called "visually stunning," "wildly inventive," and "hysterically funny." The show takes a closer look at the technology that both surrounds and isolates us, showcasing technogeek ingenuity while uniting the audience in primal, collective exhilaration. With no spoken language, Blue Man Group is perfect for people of all ages (5+), languages, and cultures.

“Zzzzzzz”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

This was a flat out bore. I thought it was beyond corny and I even found myself closing my eyes at one point. There were a couple of kind of cool parts, like the music with paint, but for the most part I think I could have skipped it. There was one particularly painful portion involving cell phones that was a real waste of time. I would not recommend

“Inspiring performance art”
Reviewed May 7, 2013 via mobile

Took my 18 year old granddaughter to a weekday matinee. Bought tix the day before so our seats were in a terrible view point. The theatre was filled with school groups. That said its still a good show, this was my 3rd time to see them and will go back but with better planning. Inspiring and fun.

“Really entertaining”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

My husband and I went to see Blue Man Group during our anniversary week in Chicago. We selected the option for the dinner package with Jack's on Halstead. It was great. The Blue Men are so funny and dinner was great.

“If you haven't seen Blue Man Group (and you aren't prone to seizures) GO NOW”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

They keep it fresh and the creativity of the music, visuals and even participation is just stunning. They use strobes sometimes, so I am not joking when I give the seizure advice. It is fun for the entire family, a single, a date, a group, etc.
