It is imperative to use the cliché – Oh (pause) my (pause) God (applause) – for this one!
The Blue Man Group are sensationally awe-inspiring, and visually spectacular. This literal shake-your-booty extravaganza – the trio magically hypnotise everyone to let go and dance with their “seven rock concert dance steps” – is one laughter-filled ride that starts and wraps up with brilliant paint-splattering drumming, and a whole lot of tom-foolery in between.
Jaws drop, eyeballs roll, and the senses take a spin as the three bald men covered in uniform blue serenade their way into audiences’ hearts by blending comedy, music and multimedia theatrics to come up with an act that thrills all age groups.
Best enjoyed from the front rows, it features a subtle yet constantly running appealing commentary on various aspects of modern day life.
The Blue Man Group act are live entertainment at its best. Ignore office work, bunk university lectures, skip dinner, cancel dates, and postpone deadlines, but make sure not to miss it! (JR)
