Blue Man Group Special Sensory-Friendly Performance

Blue Man Group tickets are back! Once again Blue Man Group will support Autism Speaks with an autism-friendly show & donation on November 5th!

As part of a year long partnership with Autism Speaks, Blue Man Group will donate a minimum of $25,000 toward autism awareness efforts and research to benefit families affected by autism.

At this performance, slight modifications will be made including:

Reduction of sound and light levels at various moments during the performance. Please note that while light levels will be reduced, strobe lighting is still used in the show.

Sound reducing headphones or earplugs (depending on market) available upon request

Blue Men will limit the amount of "chair walking” and keep their approach to the audience more subdued

Calming environments in each theatre’s lobby for families seeking a break from the excitement
