The Blue Man Group

Rediscover your sense of awe at today's performance by the Blue Man Group. Unlike previous Blue Man concerts, this is a theatrical production, similar to the group’s long-running Broadway-like shows in Chicago, Las Vegas and Tokyo.

The show includes a few Blue Man favorites, as well as a wealth of new material that mixes music, theatrics, science and comedy. The backdrop is an LED curtain and high-resolution screen that spans the stage, adding to the already over-the-top visual quality of the show. (Expect oversize drums, huge, floating illuminated spheres and a live band on stage as well.)

Blue Man Group co-founder Philip Stanton says the reason the group has never toured with the theatrical production is technical. "We needed to find a way to transform theaters of all shapes and sizes into spaces … where the audience can become engaged with the spirit of the show," Stanton says via press materials. "We think we have finally figured it out, and an audience member in a theater that seats 4,500 people or so will now be able to enjoy the same intimate experience that might be had in one of our smaller theaters." 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 11 a.m., 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday and 3 and 7 p.m. Sunday. Jones Hall, 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-632-8113 or visit www.spahouston.org. $24 to $59.
