Description

from Blue Man Group Chicago
One of Chicago's longest-running shows, Blue Man Group is a unique audiovisual experience—vibrant, colorful, and hilarious. Family-friendly and fabulously blue, this critically acclaimed show features innovative music and technology combined with good-humored social commentary.

After you’ve admired the black-light artwork and intimate setting of the Briar Street Theatre, find your seat and prepare for the rise of the curtain. Fueled by technological advances, this recently revamped show incorporates the ‘GiPad,’ a giant tablet that communicates with the silent trio.

Three bald, blue men lead you through a captivating multimedia journey filled with euphoric drumming, neon lighting, and paint splattering. Gladly follow them from the funny and intelligent, to the riveting and thought-provoking. Equal parts innovative musical performance, and introspective peeks into our fast-paced philosophies, Blue Man Group celebrates culture, comedy, and, of course, the color blue.

Parking
Limited Parking is available. Fees vary. The theatre recommends guests arrive at least one-half hour before curtain to ensure a spot.

WARNING! A STROBE LIGHT IS USED DURING THE PERFORMANCE AND MAY BE CONSIDERED HAZARDOUS TO CERTAIN PATRONS.

"Hilarious and Entertaining!"
April 2018
We went to the matinee show to save a couple more dollars and leave our nights open for other shows/clubs. Blue Man Group was very entertaining & so funny! Love when the comedy comes across without them saying a word. The music was very cool too. Interactive show involved the audience, ending was amazing!

"Blue Man Group is fantastic!"
March 2018
This was my second time seeing Blue Man Group. I went a few years ago in Vegas. The Chicago show is fantastic I love the Blue Man Group! Their antics so unique, the whole family would enjoy it--- I highly recommend an evening out at Blue Man Group. I wouldn't want to sit in the front where the folks are wearing plastic to avoid getting splashed ...but those who would be okay with that --- more power to them. Sometimes the music was a little bit loud but other than that it was such a great show, so entertaining!

"Bad Seats"
March 2018
Our seats were on the side and didn't get to experience with my two grandkids
when the big balls and streamers came down. Other than that I love the Blue Man Group.
