Astor Place Theatre

Blue Man Group is one of New York's longest-running shows and one of its hardest to describe! In the show, three enigmatic bald and blue characters take the audience through a multi-sensory experience that combines theater, percussive music, art, science and vaudeville into a form of entertainment that is like nothing else either on or off Broadway. Although there is no main plot, the show is split into themes such as innocence and surprise towards technology, information overload, as well as an elegant dinner involving a Twinkie snack.

Orpheum Theater

Stomp is one of New York's most unique entertainment experiences.

Their technical skill is truly awesome: this perfectly synchronized ballet of juggled sticks, drums, and what-have-you is indeed thrilling to witness. More info
