Blue Man Productions Compliment - Blue Man Group Show In Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- My wife and I recently attended the Blue Man Group show in Las Vegas at the Venetian Hotel. In the past I had seen the commercials for the show and never really had a desire to check it out.
After seeing the show in person, I would recommend it to everyone!
A big part of the show is comedy, which you never really get a feel for from the billboards and commercials. I pretty much laughed through most the show. They also do a good job of keeping the audience involved, both with audience participation and with the entertainers coming out into the crowd. There are even a few segments of the show where the entire audience is involved and it gets pretty fun. I won't spoil the details here in case you are interested in seeing the show... ;-)
Visually it was amazing. I spent half the time trying to figure out what the heck those guys were wearing over their heads. They do a number of acts with colored lights and drums filled with paint. Front row audience members are given protective gear for reasons that become obvious once the show starts.
One of my favorite segments of the show was the band they had playing in the background. Every so often between scenes this black-light lit band would kick in jam for a few sessions before the next skip... It was all very visually and musically entertaining.
There were a few slow segments, but they always rebounded with something to pull you back into the show.
Afterwards we got to meet the cast out in the lobby and take pictures. It was the most fun I had at a show in a long time.
If you get a chance to see the show, I would definitely recommend it!
