Universal’s new Blue Man Group show explores (and satirizes) our society’s obsession with technology, and the new elements have the Blue Men playing with “GiPads” (i.e., gigantic iPads) – poking fun at contemporary modes of communication; there’s also a new finale featuring an original pulsating Blue Man Group music score sure to have guests on their feet.

Chris Wink, who co-founded Blue Man Group with Phil Stanton and Matt Goldman, said

“The heart of our show is, and always has been, the Blue Man, and his inquisitive, wide-eyed take on the world.  Our team of artists at Blue Man Productions has created fun, even astounding new visual aspects of the show, and our music team has given us a great new sound.  We are really excited to incorporate these elements into the show at Universal Orlando Resort.”

Several of Blue Man Group’s signature moments remain in the show, although in most cases, they have also been updated.  And as always, the production will fuse innovative theatrical spectacle with improvisation and vaudeville-inspired comedy, art, science and irresistible music performed by the Blue Man Group live band.

Phil Stanton, Blue Man Group co-founder, added

“Many of our audience’s favorite pieces, including ‘Paint Drumming’ and ‘Gum Balls/Marshmallows’ will continue to be a part of the production – and yes, the first few rows will still need to wear ponchos, but we have developed some brand new elements of the show that provide a larger-than-life, rousing, interactive experience that I hope will really speak to all cultures and give some of our most devoted fans a new reason to check us out again.”
