Turn Red with Laughter: The Blue Man Group Schedule
Whether you have seen a performance of the Blue Man Group or
not, it is worth taking your friends and family who have not yet seen it. What an amazing experience for most of the entire
family. Fort Worth audiences will have another opportunity to be amazed by The Blue Men Group at the Bass Performance Hall.
What is incredible about seeing this performance live is that each and every one of the audience members becomes more than
simply an observer. The audience becomes participants. Watching a performance of Blue Man Group is so fun and exciting that
it almost makes one want to paint oneself blue and hit the road with the tour. No doubt, the comedic genius of the three blue-faced
characters would find a unique way to utilize a stowaway. While we have always heard that three is a crowd, it does not prove
true for the Blue Man Group. The Blue Man Group opens on January 17 and closes on January 19 at the Bass Performance Hall.
The show runs two hours with one fifteen-minute intermission. Please note that the show is appropriate for most of the family
who are aged 8 years and over.
The Blue Men Group Is a Colorful Experience
There is something quite mesmerizing
about a performance of Blue Man Group. The three characters are blue in color and bald with the whites of their eyes standing
out, easily creating a means to pantomime. Their performance is truly spellbinding due to the multi-sensory nature of the
experience. It combines different elements of theater and even harkens back to the days of vaudeville. The team utilizes art
and percussive music to create a mind-blowing sensory experience that will be hard for children and adults to forget. It is
not simply an experience of performer and audience, as the audience is engaged in ways that bring them into the performance.
It truly is a unique theater experience and an invaluable experience that will likely awaken creative energies in both a child
and adult audiences.
Blue Man Group Trivia
The Blue Man Group's origins take us back to the streets of
Manhattan in the 1980s. Three friends, Chris Wink, Phil Stanton and Matt Goldman decided to pant themselves in blue makeup
and perform on the street. The numerous street performances around Manhattan led to the creation of a theatrical show. The
show first premiered at the iconic La Mama, ETC, which is a performance space. Its success landed the three friends (and now
more than 60 blue men!) performing on stage at the off-Broadway Astor Place Theatre. It is amazing to think that the Blue
Man Group have been entertaining audiences in major cities in the United States, like New York, Boston, Chicago and Las Vegas.
The National Tours have taken them to even more cities, like Forth Worth. It truly is a worthwhile experience to see the Blue
Men perform such eye-catchingly beautiful art live accompanied by an amazingly artistic and colorful sonic experience. It
truly is a unique experience to have ones sense heightened through the sound of percussion, but also see the sound through
the utilization of paint and light. With the push to incorporate art into disciplines of science, technology and engineering
in education, The Blue Man Group was ahead of its time. The audience engagement in this intelligent and profound way, is definitely
ahead of the curve in creating new knowledge.
The Original Blue Man Group Cast
The first ever Blue Man
Group cast consisted of Matt Goldman, Phil Stanton and Chris Wink. All three, painted in blue, and entertained audiences.
To think, they worked their way up from performing on the streets. Their success definitely serves as a reminder to not take
street artist and their performances for granted. One never knows who that performer might become!
Blue Man Group
The Blue Man Group was created and written by Matt Goldman, Phil Stanton and Chris Wink. The scenic design,
lighting design and costume design is by Kevin Joseph Roach, Brian Aldous, Lydia Tanji and Patricia Murphy. The design team
is truly amazing and has done more than an excellent job at ensuring that the vision of Goldman, Stanton and Wink is realized
in every show.
Fort Worth audience will not want to miss out on this excellent show that will entertain the entire family
(well, those who are aged 8 and up). It will leave you and the children in your life talking about the experience for months
and, quite possibly, years to come. It is playful and clever in the way the Blue Man Group engages it audience members to
be more than simply an observer. The paint and percussion are instrumental to a profound sonic and visual experience. It is
most certainly an intelligently written work of art that heightens ones awareness through the stimulation of multiple senses
all at once. Even with one's eyes closed, equipped with earplugs, one could feel the vibrant and colorful energy that fills
the performance hall at every performance of the Blue Man Group.
