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

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!

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.
