After six successful years on the road, Blue Man Group will circle the United States one more time prior to taking the theatrical tour worldwide. Audiences can catch the wildly popular, award-winning Blue Man Group when they return to Cleveland February 5 – 7, 2016. Tickets are currently on sale, and can be purchased by calling 216-241-6000 or online at www.playhousesquare.org.
Blue Man Group is comedy, theatre, rock concert and dance party all rolled into one. The Blue Man Group theatrical tour showcases classic Blue Man favorites, along with brand new content. Now approaching their 25th year of creativity, this artistic group is continually updating and refreshing Blue Man shows with new music, fresh stories, custom instruments and state-of-the-art technology.
“We live in a fast-paced, ever-evolving world. The Blue Man character is a curious being who explores our cultural norms, our every-day objects, but he sees them with fresh eyes and an innocent perspective. As the world around us changes, we are constantly inspired to create new scenarios for the Blue Man to explore,” said Phil Stanton, Co-Founder of Blue Man Group.
“Plus, we really like to keep things fresh and vibrant. For almost 25 years, although the content within the show varies, the mission of every Blue Man Group show has remained the same – to bring the collective audience together with the Blue Men for a euphoric celebration, a heightened state of being alive,” added Co-Founder Chris Wink.
The trademark of every Blue Man Group show is a combination of visually stunning multi-media, multi-sensory performance. The Blue Men are accompanied by a live band whose haunting tribal rhythms help drive the show to its unforgettable climax.
Across the country, Blue Man Group has received acclaim. The San Antonio Express-News proclaimed it’s “an exhilarating, thought-provoking, laugh-yourself-silly evening of percussion-heavy rock music, comedy and playful commentary.” “You’ve never seen anything like it. And, chances are, you never will,” said the Bayou Buzz in New Orleans. The Los Angeles Times called Blue Man Group “a guaranteed good time” and the popular family blog Macaroni Kid wrote, “All I can say is GO SEE THIS SHOW! Bring your kids, bring your partner, bring your parents, bring your friends … GO!”
For the founders of Blue Man Group, the universal appeal is based on our shared human DNA. Phil Stanton elaborated, “We say that no matter how high-tech things get, there’s still something human there. We’ll always need others, always need to collaborate. People still need to come together and look each other in the eye. Through the Blue Man’s connection with the audience, we hope to encourage this human-to-human interaction, while helping people reconnect with their own sense of wonder and discovery, with their own sense of what is possible in their lives.”
