The only time it is acceptable to have a blue holiday season is if it involves men plastered in blue paint performing comedic and musical mayhem. The Blue Man Group returns to Austin to ring in the new year with a variety of variety shows.
What is this Blue Man Group, anyway?
Three guys got together in 1987 and made their way around Manhattan, eventually adding a host and creating a full-length show. The trio of humanoid characters are actors and musicians adorned in bald caps and covered in royal blue makeup. The group’s popularity began to snowball and numerous awards began to accumulate. Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, Orlando and New York are home to the group with year-round performances. They don’t stop there, though. They bring the fun to us, touring all over the world. There’s a Norweigan cruise line, a Berlin theater, television appearances. I’d put money on them being the first source of entertainment when humans take over Mars in 2023. They’ve added new content, sound and video, featuring a giant LED curtain for your sensory pleasure.
The Blue Man Group was voted #23 in a user poll of the best 2011 events in Austin, which says a lot. How lucky are we that not only is the group coming to Austin, but they will be performing 4 times at the Long Center:
