Blue Man Group Review

I’m excited to share that the Blue Man Group is currently on tour. They were recently in Cleveland at the Palace Theater in PlayhouseSquare and Dave and I took some time to go see them. What a show!

Blue Man Group DrummingThey had the entire audience laughing, clapping, and dancing in their seats. It’s such an entertaining and interactive show that you can’t help but have a great time. Throughout the show they amazed us with their quirky talents like:

  • Catching an extraordinary amount of marshmallows in their mouths tossed from across the stage
  • Drumming on a variety of different pipes and tubes to catchy beats that had us tapping our feet and dancing in our seats
  • Creating an impressive rhythm simply by chomping on Cap’n Crunch
  • Drumming in colorful paint and creating pieces of art
  • Catching paint balls in their mouths and then spitting/spraying the paint on to a white board in a form of abstract art
  • …and more!

Blue Man Group ReviewThe show was spectacular and we loved the audience interaction. A member of the audience was selected to come on stage to enjoy a comical dinner of Twinkies with the Blue Men. It was far from your typical dinner and had us all laughing and groaning at the same time. They also chose another audience member to don a paint suit and be hustled backstage for some abstract body art.

These were fun moments and we enjoyed that the Blue Man Group continually acknowledged and involved the audience throughout the performance. One way they did this was by walking up and down the aisles and randomly stopping to stare at audience members. This turned out to be quite awkward for the person being stared at but pretty funny for the rest of us. Later they took this a step further by actually walking through and over the audience by stepping on arm rests and seatbacks.

They also spent a lot of time looking out at us often in a surprised manner as if to ask, “What are you doing here?” and sometimes, “What was that?” in response to something they did or something someone shouted.

Blue Man GroupThe ultimate audience involvement segment came at the end of the show. The Blue Men rolled out enormous balls, balls so big they wouldn’t fit inside my living room! At first they drummed on them and then it wasn’t long before they tossed them out to the audience for us to bop around in delight. It may seem a bit silly, but honestly it was so carefree and fun watching the colorful balls bounce around and bopping them back whenever they would float our way.

Blue Man Group TourThe tour is continuing on and the upcoming dates and locations can be found on the Blue Man Group National Tour schedule page.

The show ended on such an exhilarating note that we recommend it to anyone looking for fun and fantastic entertainment that’s sure to provide amazement, smiles, laughter, and even some dancing.

  18. We saw Blue Man Group in Las Vegas and loved it!! Also, I had heard before the show if we hurried to The Gift Shop we could purchase the painting they did on the stage so we did!! It cost $45 which I thought was a great price! And then we went back to where they came out after the show and they autographed it by stamping it with their blue hands! Have it hanging in our home now! It’s amazing!!

    My boys saw a Blue Man show some years ago—they LOVED it! Mine are more rock, blues, “alternative” music lovers and have seen many concerts. But they said this was one of the best shows they’d ever seen.
