Blue Man Group is excellent. I have seen them 3 times at their original black box theater in Astor Place, NY City (holds about 200 in dilapidated seats). But the show rocks enough that Las Vegas sells it out at $100 ticket. The show WOULD fit and work on a cruise ship, kids LOVE it, but it has very sophisticated adult humor as well. I have mentioned this to the cruise lines.
When I say I have mentioned it to cruise lines I am referring to saying this to Holland America on a few different occasions.
Also... last year when NCL sent some of us press to Las Vegas to announce some of the new entertainment features they would have on Epic I THEN guessed that they would be announcing Blue Man Group. I was right and a good year ahead of my time. My record for predicting cruise events is getting to be pretty good.
So, I also predict this will usher in a new era in cruise ship entertainment. Blue Man Group will be very successful as a show on Epic and it will become one of the first ships that people actually book primarily for the entertainment onboard.
I got an email from NCL this morning annoucing this, and I thought - wow what a great idea! Paul - how savvy you are - too bad it took them this long to make it happen.
I enjoyed their show in Vegas. There shows are fun with some great energy.
Good idea -- I've seen it several times in Chicago at the Briar, its windy city home, but I'd watch it again. I enjoyed the time they brought on 2nd City on our med cruise a couple of years ago, except it conflicted with the main stage show -- hate when that happens.
Epic is one of the few new ships that I've actually looked forward to its launch.
It has many new innovations and entertainment options that I am anxious to experience.
The only negative is that it looks like they stuck a pop-up camper on the front of the ship.
That's a negative? Hey, at least I won't be the ugliest sight on the ship
Those are my principles. If you don't like them, I have others. ---Groucho Marx
