THEATER: Blue Man Group


When the term "blue man" is used, a few things may come to mind — Smurfs, Violet Beauregarde (the girl who gets turned into a rotund blueberry in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"), or the Blue Man Group. The troupe of nearly neon blue-skinned men will make an unforgettable impression when seen for the first time. Rochesterians will have the opportunity to experience Blue Man Group firsthand at the Auditorium Theatre (885 E. Main St.) from Friday, November 2, to Sunday, November 4. The performers will deliver their usual multimedia-bolstered performance art with a live band accompanying with tribal rhythms, and will debut new material in its first-ever theatrical tour. New sounds, sets, and video designs complete with a proscenium-sized LED curtain and high-resolution screens will create an entirely new dynamic to Blue Man Group's already unique material.

Shows will be held Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sunday at 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. Tickets cost $39.50-$64.50 and can be purchased by calling 800-745-3000 or by visiting
