About the Show: The critically acclaimed Blue Man Group creates experiences that defy categorization. BMG is best known for multi-media performances that feature three bald and blue characters who take the audience on a journey that is funny, intelligent and visually stunning. A live band, whose haunting tribal rhythms help drive the show to its climax, accompanies the Blue Men.

The first-ever theatrical tour of BMG features brand new content highlighted by classic Blue Man favorites. The new sound, set, and video design centers around a proscenium-sized LED curtain and high-resolution screen that creates an entirely new, high-impact visual experience for Broadway houses across the nation. With no spoken language, BMG is perfect for people of all ages, languages, and cultures. Blue Man Group continues to play year round at Universal Orlando Resort and is a must-see for Florida residents and visitors alike.
