Event Details: Blue Man Group is a creative organization centered on a trio of mute performers that present themselves in blue paint, latex bald caps, and black clothing. Friends Chris Wink, Matt Goldman and Phil Stanton (collectively referred to as CMP) conceived the idea during the 1980s while in New York City. They began appearing on the streets in Blue Man regalia, entertaining passersby, staging unusual events such as “The Funeral For the 80s”, and short bits in Tom Murrin’s “The Alien Comic’s” underground cabarets in “The CLUB” at La MaMa Experimental Theater Club. Meryl Vladimer, then Artistic Director of “The CLUB,” liked what she saw in their work and commissioned Blue Man Group to create a full-length show. The resulting piece, “TUBES,” took off after Vladimer persuaded The New York Times critic Stephen Holden to review it. Blue Man Group’s popularity continued to snowball, eventually winning CMP an Obie Award and a “Lucille Lortel” Award, which led producers to take the show to off-Broadway. “TUBES” opened in 1991 at the Astor Place Theater. This critically acclaimed show, as well as frequent appearances on The Tonight Show, enabled CMP and Blue Man Group team to open similar productions and expand their concepts into other kinds of performances. In June of 2007, they expanded to open a theater exclusively for the BMP (formerly Nickelodeon Studios) at Universal Studios Florida in Orlando, Florida, performing two shows daily. In 1999, the group released their first audio recording, appropriately titled Audio. Although it contained some of the music from their stage productions, it was less of a soundtrack and more a collection of full-length instrumentals that featured new instruments.
