More than 35 million people around the world have experienced the smash hit that is “Blue Man Group,” and the world-renowned bald and blue trio are back on the road in a new North American tour. Under the helm of visionary director Jenny Koons, in her first collaboration with “Blue Man Group,” the tour features everything audiences know and love about “Blue Man Group” — signature drumming, colorful moments of creativity and quirky comedy — the men are still blue but the rest is all new.
Including pulsing, original music, custom-made instruments, surprise audience interaction and hilarious absurdity, “Blue Man Group” invites audiences into a joyful experience that unites audiences of all ages.
“Blue Man Group” is the global entertainment phenomenon, known for its award-winning theatrical productions, iconic characters and multiple creative explorations. “Blue Man Group” performances are euphoric celebrations of human connection through art, music, comedy and non-verbal communication. Since debuting at New York’s Astor Place Theatre in 1991, the live show has expanded to additional domestic residencies in Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas and Orlando, an international residency in Berlin, and multiple North American and world tours reaching more than 35 million people worldwide. “Blue Man Group” is universally appealing to a broad range of age groups and cultural backgrounds.
In addition to Koons, the “Blue Man Group” North American tour includes an established and prolific creative team including costume design by Emilio Sosa (“On Your Feet!,” “Motown”), video design by Lucy MacKinnon (“The Rose Tattoo,” “Spring Awakening”) and set design by Jason Ardizzone-West (“Jesus Christ Superstar Live,” “Next to Normal”).
A part of the pop culture zeitgeist, “Blue Man Group” has appeared countless times on hit shows including “Dancing with the Stars,” “The Tonight Show,” “Arrested Development,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “Schlag den Raab” (Germany), “WOWOW” (Japan) and “Caldeirão do Huck” (Brazil). Additionally, “Blue Man Group” has served as the face of branding campaigns for Intel and TIM/Brasil.
Continuously identifying and developing new ways to impact the entertainment industry, “Blue Man Group” has contributed to various film and TV scores and released multiple albums including the Grammy-nominated “Audio.” The rock concert parody, “Megastar World Tour,” played arenas across the globe. The book, “Blue Man World,” is a visually stunning anthropological exploration of the curious bald and blue character.
The “Blue Man Group” North American tour is presented in L-ISA Hyperreal Sound by L-Acoustics, the world leader in premium professional sound systems for live events. L-ISA is a ground-breaking audio technology which goes beyond traditional systems to offer extremely realistic, ultra-high-definition sound. This result is a deeper sense of involvement in the spectacular antics, music and mayhem that is “Blue Man Group”.
