Blue Man Group has reinvented live theatre with a sensational combination of comedy, technology, music, dance and art. It is an explosive interactive theatrical experience. A creative rock concert.

Created by three friends Philip Stanton, Matt Goldman and Chris Wink, this live show lives up to its awesome expectations. The material is intelligent and savvy with a humorous nod to contemporary life in the digital world. Audience participation is a key element to the show, with Blue Men creeping through the audience to select unwitting participants to assist in their skits. Much must depend on the volunteers they request, but last night they were all terrific.

Throughout the show three enigmatic bald blue characters provide the entertainment supported by a live band. The show seeks to bring people together, away from technology and towards conversing once again with each other. The fun element is contagious as Blue Men interact with the audience to create a fun filled night. Not much more can be given away. You need to experience this show rather than be told about it.

The first two rows in the stalls are classified as the Poncho Zone. Ponchos are provided in the likely event that you might be slashed with paint or bananas. But it is not just the first two rows that are involved in this spectacular. Anyone in the audience could be called up onto stage. No one is safe.

It is hard to believe that this show has been entertaining audiences around the world for 25 years and this is only the first time it has arrived on the shores of Australia. Last night everyone left the theatre smiling, the energy of the show captivated the audience. It is loud, colourful and frenetic. You will be dancing in the aisles or perhaps more appropriately shaking your Badonkadonk.

Blue Man Group is currently playing at Sydney Lyric Theatre.
