"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." Full Review
"What is “Blue Man Group”? The simple answer is that it’s 90 minutes of non-stop fun. The more complicated answer is that it’s a kind of techno-psychedelic neo-vaudeville performance art that is also a satire of performance art. Percussion, painting, videos, eating and spitting out, mime and audience participation are all involved." Full Review
"An electronic "zipper" with moving red letters sends messages of greetings to the audience, who begin to hoot and holler; some stamp their feet. Drumbeats, like rhythmic thunder, signal the beginning of you know not what, and this most extraordinary and inventive show explodes." Full Review
See it if you want a different kind of show. If you want to see how to fill theatre and make money with use of cereal and toilet paper :)
Don't see it if you expect a clever and excellent performance. This one is entertaining but no particular talent or great creativity are presented.
See it if you're a kid and is easily amused by childish antics.
