It's been 20 years since Blue Man Group burst upon the Chicago theater scene with a show that is hard to describe - but an amazing event! They stop by WCL to celebrate with some fun surprises for the audience.

Blue Man Group performances are a celebration of human connection. Mixing art, music, comedy and state-of-the-art 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. Backed by a live rock band, the Blue Men unify the audience for the show's celebratory climax - an unforgettable, euphoric dance party.

Since its Briar Street Theatre debut in 1997, Blue Man Group Chicago has:

- Entertained more than 4,600,000 people with 10,493 performances

- Held five autism-friendly performances in collaboration with Autism Speaks
