Blue Man Group

Blue Man Group PhoenixBlue Man Group

What originally formed in 1987 by Matt Goldman, Phil Stanton, and Chris Wink, has changed quite a bit to become what audiences everywhere now know as The Blue Man Group. Starting in their home turf, Goldman, Stanton and Wink played around Manhattan in such venues as Central Park.

 

Later, Meryl Vladimer, the Artistic Director of The CLUB @ La MaMa, saw their work and commissioned them to create a full-length show. Blue Man Group’s popularity continued to snowball, resulting in a performance at Lincoln Center titled “Serious Fun.” Eventually, the producers took the show off-Broadway.

Early in the history of the group, the members would speak with the crowd after the show while still in costume and full makeup, answering questions, signing autographs, and talking about the show. However later it was decided that cast members would stay in character at all times while in makeup. That meant that after shows they would still not speak to audience members, and the only “autograph” they would sign would be a smudge of blue paint. When shown a “new” piece of technology, such as a cell phone or even an old pair of binoculars, they will simply stare at it in wonder, staying in full alien-esque character.

When you see a show, plan on being excited, entertained, and surprised. The show is not only filled with incredible percussion-based music, but is also filled with witty humor and can even be a bit educational. And all this is done without the Blue Men saying a word.
