Default Blue Man Group

Okay - I can't say it enough because to actually see it hapoen is the culmination of years and years of me knowing - in my gut - that I know a little bit about entertainment. I have been watching cruise ship shows (professionally) for 25 years now, and I started started recommending Blue Man Group as a show a cruise line should put on back in 1993. I am sure I am not the only one, but I guarantee you I did it many times.

Even more importantly over the years I have done it again and again in print in CruiseMates.

I just saw Blue Man Group show again tonight on Epic (I also saw it a few days ago) - and this time I sat in one of the front rows and it was every bit as good as any other version of BMG I have ever seen.

You really have to give NCL credit for the amount of work they put into getting this show up on Epic. It is the full-fledged entire production, no skimping. And it was great.

Tonight the audience was really into the show, and that obviously had an effect on the players. It was just great.

I have to say that I've seen BMG on TV and I just don't "get" it? What am I missing, or am I just an "old fogey" ?

me too !!!
I think and I heard a lot of people that did not get it too.
I think it was not gut Idea with blue people.

And I would never allow small children
to see all that stuff - a lot of children were happy but some were
really "not amused"

I saw BMG many years ago .They were the first of their kind ,they approached their medium in an innovative way. Sort of similiar to DEVO .

Blue Man Group has three characters in bluejump suits and wearing blue body paint head to toe.

There is no plot - it is just a series of vignettes where the "men" (representing humanity on its quest for ultimate knowledge but trapped in a physical universe) see and do different things that are commentaries on the human condition.

There is a lot of great technology for stage effects, which makes it fun to watch, but in terms of plot, the idea is just to show you the wonder and limitations and often humor of the human condition.

The three men appear to be friends but they also do competive things to watch out for themselves.

I think you just have to watch it as there isn't much else to say about it. I could describe so some the action but the magic is in the execution - the vignette itself.

Here is a sample: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtGRb...eature=related
