The BLUE MAN GROUP made it’s premiere last night in South Florida at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. Running in Miami for only a limited time, May 13 – 18, the Blue Man Group is sure to knock your socks off!
For the first time ever, BLUE MAN GROUP is on the road for its first U.S. theatrical tour. This year the Blue Man Group is part of the Broadway in Miami and is guaranteed not to disappoint. You no longer have to travel to see them, because they have come to see you and put on the show of a lifetime.
Fortunately. Miami is going to get to experience a show like it’s never seen before. My family first experienced the Blue Man Group a few years ago during a trip to Orlando. We had an outstanding, exciting and very memorable time!
Blue Man Group is a hands on audience-interactive show. Papa Bear was selected to participate in the show. He remained seated but was given something to hold. That something was a piece of chocolate. He is allergic to chocolate, when eaten. So you can imagine the hysterical laughter I broke into watching this take place. He sat quite still with his hand out carefully holding the chocolate until one of the blue men retrieved it. He was a real trooper.
Blue Man Group has made some changes, and it just gets better. Known for their sold-out shows, they combine comedy, music and the latest in technology, like the GiPad, to bring you non-stop fun and laughter.
This time around the Blue Man Group has integrated new technology into the show for more hysterical laughs. You will find yourself laughing, clapping along, swaying and even clamoring to be selected to be a part of the show.
Non traditional musical instruments, such as PVC piping and Cap’N Crunch cereal, bring a new spin to creating music and beats. They even have a band that sits above the group and stage, putting on a fun and visual show of their own.
If you are coming just to enjoy the show, don’t be late, otherwise you may quickly, and unknowingly, become part of the show.
There isn’t a bad seat in the house, but if you really want the whole interactive experience, and a chance to be part of the show, be sure to get as close as possible to the stage. Sitting in the first couple of rows even gets you a plastic poncho to keep you dry and paint free. You may possibly receive a handmade painting from the Blue Men themselves.
Get ready for balls of fun as huge balls, of changing color, are released from the stage and into the audience for a game of catch. Confetti and toilet paper surround the entire theater, unleashed by the Blue Men themselves.
I am not the only one raving about the show, hear what the critics have to say:
“One of the most delightful performance pieces ever staged!” – The New York Times
E! Entertainment News exclaims, “BLUE MAN GROUP is what every live performance aspires to be.”
The Baltimore Sun raves, “BLUE MAN GROUP packs a wallop. It’s a big, loud, funny, silly, visually arresting production!”
Blue Man Group is perfect for people of all ages, from your littlest tikes to your grandparents! Even my mother in law could enjoy a show like this because there is no language barrier considering the entire show is speechless, think Mimes.
Ticket prices are family and budget friendly and start at only $26. There are only seven shows left, playing in the evening on weekdays and with two shows each on Saturday and Sunday.
Make it a family night, a date night, a culture night! Whatever you call it, make it a Blue Man Group night and don’t miss this limited time engagement. Remember, the fun in Miami ends on Sunday and shows are selling out quickly!
The Blue Man Group is playing at the Ziff Ballet Opera House located in the Adrienne Arsht Center, 1300 Biscayne Boulevard, Miami, FL 33132. Tickets are available for purchase here or by calling the Box Office at (305) 949-6722.
