Open Run

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.

Jason Zinoman, New York Times

Why See Blue Man Group?

The Mind-Boggling Off-broadway Favorite!

One of New York's longest-running shows, the Blue Man Group is a little hard to describe, but we'll give it a go! Take a healthy dose of percussion, mix it in with some vaudeville, a pinch of cutting edge technology, and half a teaspoon of comedy, and you've got... well, the Blue Man Group! Guiding you through this multi-sensory, alternatively amazing and hilarious show are three blue-painted performers, who don't seem to have too much knowledge about life on earth. Through a mixture of stunt, sketches and LOTS of drumming, they'll try and learn about these strange things called 'humans', and might just ask you up on the stage to aid in their research.

A show unlike any other, it's no surprise that the Blue Man Group have become a world-famous act, with permanent productions here in New York, as well as Las Vegas, Orlando, Chicago, Boston and Berlin.

A BRIEF HISTORY

A show unlike any other, it's no surprise that the Blue Man Group have become a world-famous act, with permanent productions here in New York, as well as Las Vegas, Orlando, Chicago, Boston and Berlin. It all began in the late eighties, when trio of friends Chris Wink, Phil Stanton and Matt Goldman took to the streets of New York in Blue make-up as a piece of performance art. Their appearence eventually led to an Off-Broadway show at Astor Palace, and the gorup have been a resident fixture of the New York theater scene ever since.

Did You Know?

The Blue Men take an hour before each performance to get into costume and coat themselves in that famous blue paint!
