Blue Man Group in Boston


I’m just back at Graeme’s house after a trip into Boston to see “Blue Man Group”. Wow! We didn’t have god seats so missed a couple of bits of the drumming but the rest of the show was excellent.

I particularly enjoyed the way they played with the concept of performance, played with the audience and used technology real well. The PVC pipe organ is an amazing musical instrument – to make it even more interesting it starts out grey but the tubes glow either light blue, pink, yellow or orange when hit by UV.

They did one brilliant bit with a woman in the audience and eating Twinkies where they played off her reactions superbly. Excellent music, great performance. I always enjoy people who produce avante garde performance without becoming elitist. Gotta recommend these guys wherever in the world they are showing.
