Blue Man Group

First Night:  Tue, Oct 8, 2019 - 7:30 PM

Second Night:  Wed, Oct 9, 2019 - 7:30 PM

Hard to describe, easy to love! They decorate canvases with paint spit from their mouths; they play Cap’n Crunch cereal boxes like drums; and they fill their actual drum heads with paint, creating a kaleidoscope of brilliant color with every stroke of the drumstick. Oh, and never mind the bit with the Twinkie. Created in 1988, they are the Blue Man Group: “ the appealing peculiarity of these wordless, smooth-skulled creatures remains…a great pulsating night of theater” ( New York Times).
