BLUE MAN GROUP ANNOUNCES AUTISM-FRIENDLY SHOWS AND PARTNERS WITH AUTISM SPEAKS FOR 3RD YEAR

 

The Blue Men show us there are so many different ways to communicate and connect. That's why Blue Man Group is teaming up with Autism Speaks for the third consecutive year and will be hosting autism-friendly performances suitable for individuals and families affected by autism in New York, Las Vegas, Boston, Chicago and Orlando.

 

In its fourth year working with Autism Speaks, Blue Man Group Chicago will also add a second autism-friendly performance to accommodate growing demand. Tickets for these special performances in New York, Boston, Chicago and Orlando will be discounted, and $5 from each ticket will be donated to Autism Speaks.  The Grant a Gift Autism Foundation is partnering with Blue Man Group for the sensory-friendly performance in Las Vegas.

 

The following is a list of all autism-friendly performances: 

​​

At these performances, slight modifications will be made including:

 

Reduction of sound and light levels at various moments during the performance. Please note that while light levels will be reduced, strobe lighting is still used in the show. Please contact us for further information. 

 

 

Sound reducing headphones or earplugs (depending on market) available upon request

 

Blue Men will limit the amount of "chair walking” and keep their approach to the audience more subdued

 

Calming environments in each theatre’s lobby for families seeking a break from the excitement

 

Show modifications vary by market. Contact your local Box Office for more information.

 

"We’ve heard from many families affected by autism that their children responded to the Blue Man character in a very moving way. We are thrilled to provide a safe and welcoming environment and are often quite moved by the emotional response to the show,” says Phil Stanton, Blue Man Group co-founder.
