Description

from Blue Man Group Chicago
Blue Man Group, one of Chicago's longest-running shows, 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.

Find your seat after you’ve admired the black-light artwork and intimate setting of the Briar Street Theatre, and prepare for the rise of the curtain. Fueled by our culture's 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.

Limited Parking is available for $15.00 in our lot. We recommend that the patron arrive at least one half hour before curtain to ensure a spot.
