Blue Man for Every Man (and Woman)

The Blue Man is every man. That’s what the Blue Man Group’s creative team says is the secret to their success and one of the main elements that makes the show so universally popular. Puck Quinn, creative director of character development and appearances, says, “The show deals with topics and issues that are common to every culture: communication, sensory overload, beating music and heavy rhythm, dancing… We have things that we want to say.” But Quinn quickly adds, “But we don’t care if you don’t want to hear it. We just want everyone to have fun.”

Blue Man Group’s run at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in Appleton October 9-14 will feature some of the most famous Blue Man elements, but for the 17 million people who have seen Blue Man Group worldwide, there’s plenty of new material on this first theatrical tour. Phil Stanton, co-founder of Blue Man with Goldman and Chris Wink says, “Some pieces have evolved a lot more for the tour,” and he adds that technology has a big role to play in the new production.

It has been said that no one knows how to make an inspired mess like Blue Man Group, and if you’re in the first few rows, be prepared to don a poncho. “It’s all about connection,” according to Goldman, and sometimes, that means with paint. “We believe that we’re all creative beings, and creativity can look a lot of different ways.”
