What it's about:
Blue Man Group centers on three human(ish) men who have blue heads and no ears. They don’t speak and, in fact, utter not one sound. But look at their faces long enough and you can detect the faintest hint of curiosity and wonder, like when gazing at audience members’ cell phones and Blackberrys as if they were objects from outer space. The ultimate mission of the Blue Men is to share with us their own interesting gadgets, like their sci-fi drum kits and LED-screen thought balloons. Just prepare yourself when they break out the Cap ‘n Crunch and toilet paper.

As I sit and attempt to recreate my experience, I find it extremely difficult. It's not difficult because the show was without value or content, but rather because the Blue Man Group was an extraterrestrial experience. The “aliens” swallow balls of clay and paint to create oral art. They throw toilet paper at the audience as strobe lights flash and percussion is played. These antics seem playful and childish but I have spent days searching for deeper thinking in a show where the players never opened their mouths to say a word yet still interacted with the audience.
