The first time I saw Blue man group was at the Briar Street Theatre in Chicago, and it was amazing.. The theatre seats less people than most other venues, so all the guests got a great view. I went to see them tonight in St. Louis at the Scottrade Center and was so disappointed (almost 10,000 people!!) yikes! They're great nonetheless.. If you're going to go though, and it's not somewhere small like the Briar Street Theatre, do spend the extra money on good seats.. otherwise it's really not worth it..

My boyfriend and I went to Blue Man Group and had a blast. Kids will love the show--especially if you get to sit in the coveted "poncho seating" however if you're wearing something nice, you might prefer to sit further back. I don't think there's a bad seat in the house. While some people may feel that BMG is overrated, I really appreciated the fact that in the show, art became interactive. It wasn't just something to look at--it was something to be a part of.

Pros: interactive, fun

I recommend this to everyone. An awesome show. Great for kids and adults alike. They have been here for many years and I saw them for the first time not too long ago on the recommendation of a friend. A definite must see!

This theatre has, and will have the Blue Man Group for a while! It is a great theatre, perfectly set up for the BMG show, and in a fun location. It is on Halsted about a block away from Belmont. Probably about 3 blocks from the Belmont Redline stop. Anyone who enjoys entertainment in general will enjoy the Blue Man Group!

This is a really fun show for teenagers, young adults or older adults that have a crazy sense of humor. This show is really interesting, funny and enjoyable. It is about three men covered in blue paint that sue all of these painting activities and humorous skits. They never talk but their actions speak louder than words. I laughed so hard my cheeks were hurting. I took my husband for his birthday and he really enjoyed it. It is a must see at least one in your life. They also have shows in other states.

I truly believe that Blue Man Group has been running here since before Joan Rivers had her first face lift. And that's a VERY LONG time! The show is unbelievable. I have never been to a theatrical production that had me amused, amazed and impressed all at the same time. Fascinating. You have to go experience this at least one time.

Blue Man Group has been playing at this theater for years now. It is a show like no other. There is no story, just many unusual stunts that will keep you entertained. Don't sit in the front if you don't like getting wet!

PROS: Entertaining!
CONS: Parking can be difficult

This show is highly over rated. The three blue men play with and throw food around like chimpanzees for about 1 1/2 hours. Occasionally they make sounds by pounding on P V C plumbing pipes. I feel riped off it was about $60 per person plus $12 for parking. I could barely stand it the only reason I stayed for almost the whole show was I kept thinking this has to get better , but it never did. for your own good don't go.

On a recent visit to Chicago, my mother, myself, and a friend from Chicago were able to got to the Briar Street Theatre and watch the Blue Man Group preform. They were fantastic. Without saying a single word for 1 hour and 45 minutes, their show was still able to wow the audience. I recommend this show to all ages. INCREDIBLE!
