Cheaper Tickets Blue Man Group NYC

Updated: April 21, 2024

This post is about concessionary tickets to Blue Man Group on Broadway, including TKTS, RUSH, and other cheaper options. 

Disclosure: While our recommendations are always unbiased, we may receive a small share of sales through some of the links below at no cost to you. See the full text.

Since 1991, these three bald, blue, silent performers known as the Blue Man Group have entertained audiences around the world with their eclectic performances, using lots of percussion, comedic movements, and a cool light show.

The performance involves lots of props like liquid and food that may splatter those sitting in the first few rows. 


Regularly-priced tickets from Ticketmaster vary based on the day of the performance. Typically, orchestra seats are $85 and up and mezzanine seats are $44 and up.

Sometimes StubHub offers slightly cheaper tickets or better seats for the same price as TodayTix.



When considering getting tickets for any Broadway show, you should think about trying for same-day tickets.

The 3 main options for cheaper tickets: are RUSH tickets, purchasing tickets at a TKTS booth, or entering a ticket lottery.

Rush Tickets 

Blue Man Group offers student rush tickets only. If you are a student, you may be able to get $40 tickets at the box office one hour before the show. 

Note that Friday night and Saturday night performances do not offer rush tickets. 

Be sure to bring your valid student ID and cash as credit cards are not accepted for rush tickets.

For those who are not students, see our post on how to get Broadway Rush tickets if you are interested in seeing other shows.

TKTS Tickets

By going to a TKTS booth on the day you want tickets, you can get tickets for approximately $59. Prices and availability vary based on the date.

To find out about how to get tickets from TKTS booths, read our TKTS post.

Lottery Tickets

Unfortunately, Blue Man Group does not currently participate in the lottery system.

That can change in the future so be sure to check our in-depth post on Broadway ticket lotteries.

You will also discover other shows that do participate.


Goldstar has tickets for $58.50 that include mezzanine or orchestra seating.

Groupon often has cheaper tickets for Blue Man Group.

Tourist Pass Concessions

Many tourist concession passes offer savings on select Broadway shows, including Blue Man Group.

It's tough to say whether these concessions are worth much as you need to educate yourself about how much a full-price ticket is going for.

There are, of course, many other benefits of getting a tourist pass.

The biggest benefit is saving a great deal of money. Some passes can save you up to 55% on your itinerary of attractions to see.
