Astor Place Theatre

Time Out says

Nestled in the East Village's historic, neoclassical Colonnade Row, the Astor Place Theater opened in 1968 and, for a while, was one of the city's go-to spots for experimental theater. Since 1991, however, it has been home to the indigo aliens of Blue Man Group, who give no sign of leaving anytime soon.

What’s on

Blue Man Group

  • 4 out of 5 stars
  • Comedy

Three deadpan blue-skinned men with extraterrestrial imaginations carry this tourist fave, a show as smart as it is ridiculous. They drum on open tubs of paint, creating splashes of color; they consume Twinkies and Cap'n Crunch; they engulf the audience in a roiling sea of toilet paper. For sheer weird, exuberant fun, it's hard to top this long-running treat. (Note: The playing schedule varies from week to week, with as many as four performances on some days and none on others.)
