Good show but had some corny stunts that looked really low budget like eating cereal and making crunching noises on stage. Some cooler stunts like light and sound effects and smoke rings

We were told we would be pary of the show but werent we thought the show would more paint more drumming.. it was corny and we almost left esrly. But the decent parts made it ok for us to stay. But we didnt like the cereal parts we found that to be un entertaining.

My kids (ages 6 and 9) had a blast the other night at the Blur Man Group! It was our first time seeing the show so none of us knew what to expect. It was loud, but they gave my son headphones and my daughter and I used ear plugs which helped a lot…the noise didn’t bother us at all. It was funny and weird and a perfect way to spend time with my kids!

What a Great Show! - perfect for a date night/anniversary

I planned a surprise for my wife to watch the Blue Man show on our 5 year anniversary, the moment she found out we were thrilled. We both absolutely loved it, we had a great time. We laughed, enjoyed the music, drums and the blue man crew’s performance. Our 5 year anniversary evening couldn’t not be better. These guys are just amazing, the show is built around live interaction with the audience. Everyone in the audience wanted to get picked by the Blue Man so they can go up on stage, it was an electrifying atmosphere. We were seated in Row P, after walking in the theatre we noticed that people seated in the front rows were given plastic coveralls/ponchos to wear. So if you don’t want to get splashed during the show back rows are the best. Highly recommend watching the Blue Man show, I can assure you that you will have a great time guys!

My daughter and I loved this experience! The show was highly entertaining and appropriate for all ages. I loved that we had 3 times to choose from on the date we planned to go. We took the train from the suburbs and got a cab to the theatre, timing worked out perfectly. No cabs around the theatre to get back to the station so we took Uber, that worked out great also.

I think I was waiting for more music along with the light show. It was there, but there is also a lot of performance, also with public participation. Besides this, the show is great.

Better than expected. Very funny and entertaining. Kids rated it the number one thing we did in Chicago. Driving and parking in Chicago is crazy and they did a nice job with parking. They even stopped traffic so people could exit their lot.
