This theater might look unimposing from the outside, but inside you’ll find it seats hundreds. It has to, as most nights it’s packed with crowds that thrill to the colorful techno antics of Blue Man Group, which has occupied the space for years (and shows no signs of vacating soon).

I've been here a few times to see Blue Man Group, and I'm happy to report that each time is a great and unique experience. There really isn't a bad seat in the house, although personally, I won't want to sit in the front section aka the Splash Zone. But for those brave enough to try, they do provide ponchos. The show is around 2 hours, but you will have so much fun that the time flies by. Don't forget to stay after the show and get your picture taken with a Blue Man or two.
