It ended up being a lot of fun. It was not what I expected, but that's what made it so great. The music was pumping through the theater, and the crowd was having a great time. I won't spoil it for any of you who aren't familiar with them, but it does require audience participation.
The performers (both the Blue Men and the musicians) were on hand after the show to take pictures with the audience on their way out. Although I wouldn't pay that much to see them again (once was enough), I was very glad I had gotten to see them at all. It was quite an experience.

The show continues. More music, more dancing, more comedy (silent of course), and someone is called down from the audience to participate in the show. She has to eat with them. They can't open their Twinkies so she helps them. They appreciate her help, and they begin eating each other's food. She goes back to her seat.
Another person is taken from the audience. He goes in the back, is hung upside down, and "paints" a picture with his body after they pour paint all over him. He goes back to his seat. Then the Blue Men do some acrobats, and have a few different acts - these were excellent. At the end of the show, the lights are out and the strobe lights begin. What happens next is something I cannot tell you because, for those of you who have not yet seen this show, it would just ruin it, and for those of you who have, you know the answer. I must say, however, that this is a definite MUST-SEE!!!

We walked down to the Stratosphere where we jumped on a bus for a $2 fare. It took almost 20 minutes to make it down from the Stratosphere to the Luxor Hotel. When we entered the Blue Man Group Theater, they had just started the show. Since we came in late, they had us go upstairs to sit and watch the show in the back. There are chairs for that specific purpose. Then at an appointed time, the ushers brought us downstairs and had us don ponchos since we bought seats in the poncho section, third row center. Luckily, we were not selected to be the "latecomers." The show completely halts, the lights go up, and the latecomers are paraded in front of the audience. Three college kids were selected. After the lights dimmed, and the audience had their laughs, we were taken to our seats in the dark. We were very thankful to stumble to our seats.
Our perspective was so different in the 3rd row after sitting in the back. Luckily, we were not splattered with paint. It’s a very interactive show with loud music and jokes. The poncho section audience had crepe paper twisted around their heads, wrists, or necks. It would be a good show to come back to repeatedly, but at almost $100 a pop, I don’t think I can afford to do it. Several audience members are picked to participate. My friend and I were happy not to be selected.
When we left, I took some crepe paper as a souvenir. I hope that with all the paper that they use in the show, they recycle. I bought a baby T-shirt as well. My crepe paper was quickly forgotten and discarded. After reflecting, I think the main section is best. The poncho section is a bit too close to the action. The main section is dangerous, though. Be prepared to participate if you are called upon.

The show opens with these three blue, bald headed guys throwing paint on a big sheet, while we in the audience sing "Happy Birthday" to people we don't even know! The Blue Man Group knows how to get the audience involved. Kids can relate to these three blue guys who know how to play and love to get dirty doing it. You will actually feel like you are a part of this show. Our kids (ages 6 through 15) were mesmerized, as were we! Blue Men play these pipes that make music along with a rock band that accompanies them. The highlight of the show is the fun, upbeat music, but this is more than a music show. There is music, art, comedy, tech & light and just pure entertainment. If you sit towards the front of the theatre, you will be offered a plastic poncho to wear. Unless you want to be splattered by paint and water, you better take them up on this offer! It's hard to describe this show without giving away a lot of what happens, the surprises are half of the fun! The Blue Men hang around after their show to sign autographs and for pictures with you. Be sure to bring your camera!
Although we paid only $69 for our seventh row seats at the Boston Blue Man show, we paid $81 for our mid-theater seats at the Las Vegas show. The $81 is a bargain, but money well spent to see this fabulous show in this venue. By all means, check around online and buy your Blue Man tickets before you go to Vegas. To buy the tickets from a vendor in Vegas will cost you between $90-200 dollars. It pays to shop around and get a discounted ticket!
This is a family favorite and a show we can't wait to see again!
