    What to Expect
    Check out the totally updated stage show of the world-famous Blue Man Group during this performance at Chicago’s Briar Street Theater. One of the city’s longest-running theater shows is totally updated with a fresh take on today’s technological age, featuring the same knee-slapping skits refreshed with 21st century technology.

    The current performance focuses on the Blue Man Group’s new “GiPad,” a not-so-subtle reference to a famous computer company. The GiPad’s unique mix of colors and lights are to sure to grab the attention of kids, while adults are sure to love the show’s ever-savvy mix of social commentary and comedy. You’re also sure to enjoy the show’s blockbuster finale, culminating in a body-moving original score that’s sure to have you dancing in the aisles.

    Please note: although Blue Man Group is known for its family-friendly appeal, the show is not recommended for kids younger than five. The theater’s box office or front-of-house manager will make decisions about admission for kids under the age of three. All kids, regardless of age, need a ticket and should sit in their own seat.

    Always wanted to visit a show. My business trip to Chicago with a weekend in between was the opportunity. Great entertainment! Funny, colorful and obscure.

    Both of my daughters ages 13 and 16 loved this show. I was a bit worried that it wouldn’t hold our attention but it did and then some. It was funny and we were amazed at many parts of the show.

    Was expecting much more. The show is gross, spitting food and paint out of their mouth. Fortunately I was not sitting in the front row or else I might gotten food spewed on me. That was not funny at all. The show creativity got stuck...More
