*Poncho ticket patrons: The poncho section is the first four or five rows closest to the stage. Patrons in this area are given ponchos to wear, because sometimes show materials make their way into the audience. These substances are washable, but we suggest that you do not wear anything that needs dry cleaning.

The Blue Man Group show is a feast for the senses. Three blue men perform the show and have been in residence at the Astor Place Theatre for more than 25 years. There is no end to each blue man’s creativity: From playing PVC pipe instruments to painting by chewing on a pod of pigment and then spewing color on a canvas, their ingenious combination of music, theatre, performance, and visual art is unparalleled.

The performance lights up all of the senses and invigorates the mind, and you might even find yourself onstage or interacting from your seat. Just don’t try to talk to a blue man; the devious, mime-like character might just have a trick or two up his sleeve.

What to Watch For

  • It’s an eight-week process for each new “blue man” to learn the ropes before joining the cast. There are about 70 blue men who perform in all of the productions around the world. Each blue man must be between 5’10’’ and 6’’ tall.
  • The show has its own research and development laboratory, where new elements of the show are created. Some of the instruments built for the show are called the snorkelbone, the chimeulum, and the spinulum.
  • The show began when the three founders decided to have a “funeral” for the end of the 1980s. They wore blue masks and led a procession through Central Park.
  • It takes an hour for the performers to paint themselves blue with greasepaint in the shade “Yves Klein Blue.” The greasepaint doesn’t completely dry, giving the character a dewy, wet look.
  • Proceed with caution. If you sit in the first five rows, you’re in the splash zone, and you’ll need to wear a provided poncho to protect yourself from the gooey substances onstage.
