FUN & ENTERTAINING SHOW FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
My wife and I arrived at our front and centre seats early and we immediately noticed how many children and families were around and the excited atmosphere they created. We were a few rows outside of the wet/messy zone... so were safe. The show was loud, interactive & fun and I recommend it for those looking to for something light hearted and entertaining. It was clever and funny but be warned... they come looking for victims in the crowd to participate in the show! I'd say it is definitely a good show for the kids. We went to the Sunday matinee performance which meant we could enjoy a tasty Chicago style hot dog from Clarke Street Dog after the show before taking a slow stroll up Clarke Street to visit Wrigley Field (home of the 2016 World Series winners the Chicago Cubs).

A LITTLE SLOW/OUT OF DATE
I went to see the Blue Man group 20 years ago with my family when it was new and fresh. I brought my wife and two daughters, 13 and 11, as a Christmas gift for the family. We were very excited to go but the overall concensus was that there wasn't too much to it. All of the drumming you can see is done from the band that is above the stage, when they play the "pipes" you could tell that they're not even hitting them, they are banging behind them, they gave everyone ponchos in the first 8 or so rows and nothing went into the crow the entire show which was strange, like why make that preperation. Idk, we ended up having a nice night in town but overall my two girls and my wife weren't very impressed. I'm not sure what they can do to liven it up but it just seems stale at this point. Over $500 later for the tix, taxes and parking, just not worth that kind of money.

I was expecting drumming and more music and it was failed attempts to make people laugh. They spent 20 mins making loud crunching noises into a microphone with cereal. Don't waste your money

Four of us went to see it last night and I was totally baffled as to what other people are seeing to give this show good reviews? It was totally stupid with fake performances with a little over one hour of a performance! I would love to get our money back as ii was a total waste! Don't waste your time or money!
