The New York Times

"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

Stage Door

"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

CurtainUp

"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
