(To find special dates during the week, you can see a full list of performances at http://www.blueman.com/chicago/about-show).
The psychedelic blend of comedy, music, and technology takes place in a small, intimate setting at the Briar Street Theatre. Nestled near popular restaurants and other local hotspots, you won't be able to miss this venue when you visit. It's a bit hard to pinpoint exactly what makes this theatrical performance so popular, but you'll soon see for yourself. But be warned: With audience participation a big part of the action, you'll want to wear some waterproof gear if you sit very close to the stage.
If you'd rather sit back and enjoy from a safely dry distance, you'll see some cool gadgets, well-timed gags and a spectacular finale. It's like a concert, theater comedy and circus all rolled up into one unexpected experience. If you've ever wanted to throw around a roll of toilet paper, you're probably in luck. Appropriate for an all-age audience, the kids will be captivated by this colorful and imaginative show. Or plan a different kind of date night and leave the theater feeling refreshed and upbeat with your plus one. If you hang around after the show, the Blue Man Group is known to hang around and sign playbills with their leftover paint.
