Minister for Tourism, Major Events and the Arts, The Hon. George Souris, recently announced yet another exciting theatrical event for Sydney. From 10 August 2013, BLUE MAN GROUP, the international entertainment phenomenon, will play an Australian premiere season at the Lyric Theatre.
BLUE MAN GROUP creates experiences that defy categorisation. Performances feature three bald and blue characters who take the audience on a journey that is funny, intelligent and visually stunning, accompanied by a live band whose tribal rhythms help drive the show to its unforgettable climax.
Best known for their wildly popular theatrical productions and concerts that combine electrifying music, sensational technology, comedy and multimedia theatrics to produce a totally unique form of entertainment, BLUE MAN GROUP continues to reinvent itself
The show combines signature moments with breathtaking new sections that include Blue Men interacting with “GiPads” (think Gigantic iPads), a funny and perceptive look at contemporary modes of communication. “Over the years, we have grown as artists and the world around us has transformed. These changes are reflected in the new material we’ve generated and implemented into this show,” said Chris Wink, who co-founded BLUE MAN GROUP with Phil Stanton and Matt Goldman.
Producer, Rodney Rigby (Jersey Boys, The Addams Family) said “After years of planning I am thrilled that BLUE MAN GROUP is now coming to Australia. This brilliant show has been entertaining audiences for 25 years and has launched one of the most innovative performance groups ever. First time audiences leave the theatre astounded by the excitement of a BLUE MAN GROUP show, resulting in one of the highest return businesses of any theatrical event. People of all ages just love the BLUE MAN GROUP experience, I am sure that same excitement will also be felt by Sydney audiences.”
