Briar Street Theatre

Remember that time when you were little and one of your imaginary friends took your hand and led you into a world that looked like yours only brighter? No? Me neither. That’s what Blue Man Group is like. 


Blue Man Group combines music, technology and comedy to create a form of entertainment that defies categorization and appeals to people of all ages. Blue Man Group’s shows have been described by critics as “innovative,” “energetic” and “wildly entertaining.” But the only way to truly understand Blue Man Group’s global popularity is to see the show for yourself.

The VIP Experience

You know that scene in that movie where a gigantic bouncer is not letting anyone into the "hot" club because their "name is not on the list"? The Blue Man Group VIP Experience is kind of like that club*, only more awesome.


As a VIP, you’ll enjoy some seriously special treatment that includes food, drinks, premium seats, free music and a private photo op. 


*Disclaimer: There’s not actually a bouncer, a clipboard or a velvet rope at Blue Man Group either.

Gift Certificates

Give the gift of Blue Man*

Purchase a gift certificate for main floor tickets online or at the Box Office in increments of $69 plus a $4 service charge.


This gift says several things about you... Right away it says, "I obviously think you’re really great person or I wouldn't give you this awesome gift."  


But, more importantly it says, "I acknowledge that you have a busy life, so I wouldn't dream of dictating when you need to go get your mind blown."


Here’s how it works: You buy the ticket, the good folks at Ticketmaster or the Briar Street Theatre will send you the gift certificate and instructions on how to redeem via First Class Mail (it should take 7-10 business days to get there, but we can't guarantee delivery by any specific date). Then you give it to the aforementioned "great" person and they can redeem it for any available show. 


*Not an actual Blue Man. For one, they only travel as a trio. For two, that would be illegal. Sheesh. 

Group Packages

Corporate Events

This isn't your mother's icebreaker. She probably doesn’t have one of those. An ice pick or ice tray perhaps, but no icebreaker. A Blue Man Group performance explores themes of community, collaboration, curiosity, and creativity -- perfect for a corporate outing. Whatever the purpose or size of your event, we can accommodate your needs. Unless you need ice picks or ice trays. We don't have those. 

Student & Youth Groups

Trying to figure out how to entertain a bunch of kids? Take them to a petting zoo? Boooooring. 


Bring them to see Blue Man Group instead. Not only is it way more fun than a bunch of llamas, it’s educational, too. We can tailor the educational component to their age group to ensure students get the most out of their visit. 

Large Groups

You know what's better than four friends having a good time? Forty-four friends having a good time. And you know what’s better than both of those? No taxes. But since we can’t do that and still have someone pick up the garbage, why not take all those friends to see Blue Man Group?



I really enjoyed going to this! Great visual art show, gets you moving in (and out of) your seat, has you laughing your bootay off, and I'd definitely go back for more!

Tricia L.

The creativity in this production is like no other I've ever seen. So much is going on, and all of it is unique. All the way from audience participation to jaw dropping inspiration.

Debbie L.

We all loved it! So entertaining, captivating, and asdfghjkl; [sic].
