The theatrical tour features brand new content highlighted by classic Blue Man Group favorites. The new sound, set, and video design centering around a proscenium-sized LED curtain and high-resolution screen create an entirely new, high-impact visual experience for Broadway houses across the nation.
The critically-acclaimed Blue Man Group creates experiences that defy categorization. Blue Man Group is best known for multi-media performances that feature three bald and blue characters who take the audience on a journey that is funny, intelligent and visually stunning. With no spoken language, Blue Man Group is perfect for people of all ages, languages, and cultures. A live band, whose haunting tribal rhythms help drive the show to its climax, accompanies the Blue Men.
“In order to create a touring version of our theatrical production, we knew we had a creative challenge to tackle,” says Blue Man Group co-founder Philip Stanton. “We needed to find a way to transform theatres of all shapes and sizes into spaces in which the Blue Man can intimately connect with the audience, where the audience can become engaged with the spirit of the show and the Blue Man himself. We think we have finally figured it out, and hopefully we will accomplish our goal, which is always to help audience members reconnect with their own sense of wonder and discovery, with their own sense of what is possible in their lives.”
The performance schedule for Blue Man Group at the Ziff Ballet Opera House, Adrienne Arsht Center, 1300 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami is: Tuesday, May 13th at 8 p.m.; Wednesday, May 14th at 8 p.m.; Thursday, May 15th at 8 p.m.; Friday, May 16th at 8 p.m.; Saturday, May 17th at 2 p.m.; Saturday May 17th at 8 p.m.; Sunday, May 18th at 1 p.m.; and Sunday, May 18th at 7 p.m.
