Blue Man Group
Tennessee Theatre – Knoxville, Tennessee
March 09, 2016
Wednesday night’s Blue Man Group’s show at the lovely and historic Tennessee Theatre was the first time I have ever seen them. I left wondering why it took so long for me to see them.
What an amazingly entertaining show!
From the LED marque scrolling above the stage, through the trippy light show, musicianship, live art creation, and interaction with the first of two sell-out crowds, everyone seemed to be mesmerized from beginning to splashing, glittery, streamer filled end.
Scanning the crowd, I couldn’t help but notice that every generation was well represented. The elderly and the youngest of kids were thrilled by the audio/visual theatric spectacle. Some actually got to leave with art work that they had help creating by the blue dudes. Yours truly was actually selected for a funny little bit.
Well, let’s just say that, a) I can’t hit the broad side of the barn; and, b) I wound up with some mysterious blob in my hand that came for the mouth of one of the blue dudes.
Yeah, seriously (but funny).
To try to describe the show would not do it any justice to this great show. All I can say is that it’s be experienced than described. Also, it’s a great show that can be enjoyed by the entire family.
Who knows? You may even get to go home with a piece of original art.
