Book A Guided Walking Tour

You probably would not recognize them on the street but when they are ready for the show - you can't mistake them. The Blue Man Group has been around since the late 1980s as theatrical performers.

The trio of actor/musicians dressed in black and painted in blue amazes and entertains the audience with music, lights and comedy. It's not a play or a musical show, it's an experience that defies categorization.
