The theatrical tour features brand new content highlighted by classic Blue Man favorites. The new sound, set, and video design center around a proscenium-sized LED curtain and high-resolution screen create an entirely new, high-impact visual experience for Broadway houses across the nation.
“Blue Man Group is kicking off a stellar 2013-2014 season. The show is a must-see for all Nebraskans,” said Bill Stephan, executive director of the Lied Center. “Blue Man Group is one of the most popular, entertaining and exciting shows in the United States. It is a high-energy production that combines comedy, music and technology. Everyone should see this show.”
Blue Man Group creates experiences that defy categorization. It is best known for multimedia performances that feature three bald and blue characters who take the audience on a journey that is funny, intelligent and visually stunning. A live band, whose haunting tribal rhythms help drive the show to its climax, accompanies the Blue Men.
“Our theatrical productions take a humorous look at what we like to call 2.5-D space,” Blue Man Group co-founder said Philip Stanton, Blue Man Group co-founder. “An example of what we mean by this would be emailing or texting the person in the next office rather than walking over to talk to them face-to-face.
“We say that no matter how high-tech things get, there’s still something human there. We’ll always need others, always need to collaborate. People still need to come together and look each other in the eye. Through the Blue Man’s connection with the audience, we hope to encourage this human-to-human interaction, while helping people reconnect with their own sense of wonder and discovery, with their own sense of what is possible in their lives.”
