NETworks Presentations, LLC and Blue Man Productions are pleased to announce a new theatrical BLUE MAN GROUP touring production, coming to the Performing Arts Center in San Luis Obispo at 7:30 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, April 8 and 9, 2013.

Cal Poly Arts presents this dazzling spectacle as part of their Center Stage special event series.  The theatrical tour features brand new content highlighted by classic Blue Man favorites.  The new sound, set, and video design centering around a proscenium-sized LED curtain and high-resolution screen create an entirely new, high-impact visual experience for venues across the nation. (High volume show)

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.

“In order to create a touring version of our theatrical production, we knew we had a creative challenge to tackle,” says Blue Man Group co-founder Philip Stanton.  “We needed to find a way to transform theatres of all shapes and sizes into spaces in which the Blue Man can intimately connect with the audience, where the audience can become engaged with the spirit of the show and the Blue Man himself. We think we have finally figured it out and hopefully we will accomplish our goal, which is always to help audience members reconnect with their own sense of wonder and discovery, with their own sense of what is possible in their lives.”
