Despite its ubiquity, the Blue Man Group retains a certain mystery, which is part of its appeal. It's almost impossible to describe "Tubes" in a few sentences.

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.
The show's origins lead back to the late '80s, when longtime friends Chris Wink, Phil Stanton and Matt Goldman began to appear on the streets of Manhattan covered in blue make-up. The appearances led to a theatrical show, which premiered at the legendary performance space La Mama, ETC and finally to off-Broadway's Astor Place Theatre in 1991. Since then, over 60 Blue Men have entertained crowds in New York, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas and beyond. Viva La Blue Man Group!
