BLUE MAN GROUP ****** Monte Carlo Resort and Casino Las Vegas http://www.blueman.com/las-vegas/about- show I will begin with the very regrettable, but honest admission that if it wasn’t for the fact that we attended this performance courtesy of an invitation, we would have left the show after 20 minutes. But that would have been kind of rude to our hosts, so we had to stay and endure. Needless to say, Blue Man Group cannot be described as high up on my list of the most memorable or incredible experiences I have participated in, as remaining in my seat until it was finally over turned out to be quite a chore. Here is why. The whole idea of this production is based on the interaction of sound, lights and visual effects achieved through such elements as different genres of music, computer graphics and animation or stroboscope. Musical instruments, especially the percussion, play a big role in creating this special fusion. The character of the performance is rather dynamic in style and it can get very loud, with an aggressive, overwhelming beat and flashing lights. I suppose this can be perceived as stimulating by some, but also a bit intrusive if you are not really into such things… The comedy factor involved in this show certainly belongs to the slapstick variety of humor: I found it rather infantile, simple and was not entertained by any of it. I can absolutely see, however, how it might appeal to kids. The young viewers are probably the only ones who will be amused by it beyond belief and will enjoy every minute of the performance. I also thought that the show was kind of slow, almost boring, some of the numbers seemed to drag out for eternity and there just wasn’t much contextual variety on offer. The “Blue Men” do engage the audience and if you’re not careful you might actually end up on stage, but the input of these “civilian” participants did not really help the overall performance in any way, once again this part was lengthy and dull. Personally I did not feel like the show presented me with anything to stimulate my intellect, it was like a mishmash of unrelated pieces, where I could not comprehend the point or the message. It possesses no substance and, at best, can only be perceived as superficially entertaining. Much has been said about this production being innovative. That might very well be true, but innovative does not necessarily always mean good. My conclusion: even though I will admit that the performance struck me as visually interesting at times, I still would not recommend it unless perhaps as a treat for your children. For what it is the tickets appear to be grossly overpriced and I would go as far as to say that it’s one of the most overrated shows in Vegas.
