Applause Theatre Service Welcomes in the New Year with Big Winter Savings on Blue Man Group and All Broadway Show Tickets!

Well this time of year brings lots of great savings for shows both on and off Broadway with Applause Theatre Service. The Winter season of savings! This season brings a first however. Great deals for one of the most popular shows ever, "Blue Man Group-Tubes". This show is so much fun and deserves multiple viewings. Here's some of my recollection of the show.
The show is multimedia avaunt-gard performance art at its best. The three performers are completely blue, never say a word, and never blink. They’re like mime artists from Mars on LSD. If there is a narrative (and there really isn’t) they would be a comedy troupe from some far off planet, having found themselves on earth and trying to come up with new material with objects that are as alien to them as they are commonplace to us.
Some of the acts are completely bizarre. Well, it’s all bizarre actually.
The set consists mostly of sewage pipes that resemble scenes from the movie Alien. The pipes are sometimes played as a xylophone or a trombone. There’s painting, marshmallows, obsession with eating cereal, a massive toilet-papering, a medical exam, synthetic drumming, and lots of audience participation. Kids and adults love this stuff!
In fact, the barrier between audience and performers was constantly broken. The audience is threatened and cajoled into participating. The eeriest moments are when they would wander in among us, one of them walking over us, stepping on the armrests. The first few rows of people were required to wear plastic ponchos because of all the spraying paint, and regurgitated food (!).
They played a lot with video art, as they went from some action on the stage to some pre-recorded events that were seamlessly woven into the stream of what we thought was reality. For instance we saw them leave the stage and then on the screen we saw a video feed of them leaving the theater, catching a taxi, then taking off. Only to have them re-emerge on the stage moments later.
In the end I’m convinced the show is all about having fun!
