About the Event
_ Prepare for the unexpected as the Blue Man Group bring their unique combination of spoken and physical theatre, circus, high-tech and improvisation to the stage. The world’s leading experimental theatre cooperative, the Blue Man Group offers an immersive, interactive theatrical experience you’ll never forget, nor see replicated anywhere else!
Although the Blue Man Group’s shows are not plot-driven, you will undoubtedly find threads that hold the evening together, in their trademark all-ages party atmosphere. This is interactive theater, too, so do not be surprised if you become part of the act. The first few rows of seats are equipped with plastic coverings, so the audience is protected from the paint and other substances that may fly around onstage. With limited touring venues, seize the chance to experience theatre as never before in their off-Broadway home.
From its spiritual home on New York’s ‘Great White Way’ the Broadway musical has been packing the audiences in for over a century. Legendary writers such as Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jerry Herman, and Stephen Sondheim, or partnerships like the Gershwins , Lerner & Loewe, Rogers & Hammerstein, Kander & Ebb, and Boublil & Schönberg, have created spectacular vehicles for star performers – so-called ‘triple threats’, who sing, dance, and act with equal talent – and powerful ensembles alike. Running the gamut from spectacular to stark and restrained, musical theatre can be pure frivolous fun, but has a long history of tackling serious social and political issues. Always primed for reinvention, alongside Broadway’s perennial hits and classics, musical theatre has a new vigor in the twenty first century, as live-action Disney, rap and ‘jukebox’ shows light up new theaters, and attract new audiences. The Show will indeed Go On!
The Blue Man Group’s show is off-Broadway fun for all the family.
