Slow, Quirky, Disappointing

See it if You are looking for a family friendly show and your kids are easy to please. Choose the first 4 rows to be in the “splash zone”! (Ponchos )

Don't see it if You don’t like Loud noise, strobe lights, sensory overload. My kid struggled even with ear plugs.

Critic Reviews (3)

The New York Times
July 28th, 2005
For a previous production

"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. It’s one of the only long-running hits that audiences will see for the first time without really knowing what to expect."
