Last week I had a fun night out with my Mom to see Blue Man Group. As a native New Yorker herself, she loves everything about the theater so it always a treat to share those experiences together.
As the quintessential New York City, the Blue Man Group has been playing on Astor Place for years, but this was the first time either of us have ever seen it. While I knew what the Blue Man Group was, I didn't really know what the show was about, or really what to expect - except, of course, that they would be in blue.
Without giving too much away, I was memorized during their entire performance that included a combination of music, comedy, technology, art - all mixed in a party atmosphere. To me this was a vivid and connected world that examined (and made fun of) modern technology while also providing thought-provoking moments without the use of any language from the three blue men on the stage - now, that's brillant!
The three performers (Pete Simpson, Issac Eddy and Gideon Banner) were riveting in their incredible movements and expressions as they left us guessing as to what they were going to do next. Another surprise was that the show was incredibly interactive (hello, dance party at the end of the show) and engaging in a way that I never experienced in theatre.
With the success of the show, you can find the show across the U.S. (New York, Boston, Orlando, Vegas, etc) as well as in on a tour across the U.S. where you can truly experience this one-of-kind theatrical/movement/art/ and musical phenomenon.
