Blue Man Group to perform at Mahalia Jackson Theater
NETworks Presentations and Blue Man Productions announced a new theatrical touring production will visit the Mahalia Jackson Theater in New Orleans for eight performances from Jan. 31 to Feb. 5, 2012. Tickets go on sale Friday at 11 a.m. at the Mahalia Jackson Box Office and all Ticketmaster locations.
Although Blue Man Group has toured previously with its Megastar arena rock show, this marks the first theatrical production to tour North America. The theatrical tour features classic Blue Man moments as well as brand new content.
Blue Man Group on tour also features a new physical design centering around a proscenium-sized LED curtain and high-resolution screen creating an entirely new visual experience for Broadway houses across the nation.
The critically acclaimed Blue Man Group creates experiences that defy categorization. Blue Man Group is best known for multi-media performances that feature three bald and blue characters who take the audience on a journey that is funny, intelligent and visually stunning. A live band, whose haunting tribal rhythms help drive the show to its climax, accompanies the Blue Men. The blissful party atmosphere created at the live events has become the trademark of a Blue Man Group experience.
“Until now, we have never mounted a touring version of our theatrical production,” says Blue Man Group co-founder Philip Stanton. “The main reason for this is we needed to find a way to transform theatres of all shapes and sizes into spaces.”
The eight performances of Blue Man Group Jan. 31-Feb. 3, 2012 at 8 p.m. and Feb. 4, 2012 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Feb. 5, 2012 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
