Blue Man Group, continuing its open run at Chicago’s Briar Street Theatre (3133 N. Halsted), will welcome the spring season with a robust performance schedule in March, April and May. The expanded performance calendar also includes shows on Easter (April 12) and Mother’s Day (May 10).

 

Blue Man Group performances are a celebration of human connection. Mixing art, music, comedy and technology, the show encourages audiences to reconnect with their inner (and outer) child and see the world through a new perspective. Three bald and blue men explore our cultural norms with wonder, poking fun at our collective quirks and reminding us how much we all have in common.

 

Spring Break audiences looking to make the most of their Chicago experience can take advantage of Blue Man Group’s ticket packages with Navy Pier’s Centennial Wheel and Skydeck Chicago. Students, families and educators are also invited to take advantage of Blue Man Group’s new “Backstage On Stage” program.

 

Soaring to heights of nearly 200 feet, Navy Pier’s Centennial Wheel is a treasured piece of Chicago’s cultural history and an iconic part of the city’s skyline. The Centennial Wheel is open year-round – weather permitting – and its enclosed, climate-controlled gondolas provide a comfortable experience and stunning views of the city and lake. The Blue Man Group Centennial Wheel ticket package allows guests to receive a free Centennial Wheel pass with each full price ticket purchase to Blue Man Group.

 

Those looking to see Chicago from its highest point can take advantage of Blue Man Group’s Skydeck ticket package this spring. Upon purchasing a ticket for Blue Man Group, Skydeck ticket package purchasers can receive a free ticket to visit Chicago’s Willis Tower Skydeck and step outside the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere with the building’s “Ledge” experience. The Ledge’s glass boxes extend four feet outside the 103rd floor of Willis Tower.

 

Group audiences interested in a behind-the-scenes look into Blue Man Group can take advantage of the production’s new “Backstage On Stage” program. The experience includes a 30-minute educational workshop featuring a history of the production, Q&As, instrument demonstrations and more, before a curated 60-minute performance. 2020 “Backstage On Stage” performance dates include:

 

  • Friday, March 13 at 4 p.m.
