Award-winning oddball theatre troupe Blue Man Group comes to Paramount Theatre Seattle on Saturday 7th November 2020 as part of the Speechless Tour! The bald blue ones will be putting on a loud, lively, colorful show combining silliness, play, art, music and social commentary to delight, intrigue and entertain!
“By building on the original DNA of Blue Man Group, Speechless will forge a path for future generations of the Blue Man tribe to explore,” said Diane Quinn, Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group’s Chief Creative Officer. “To further challenge themes of invention, curiosity and human connection, we are excited to work with our new director, Jenny Koons, whose expertise in dissolving spatial boundaries and diverse background in theater and activism, set the stage for us to deliver a transformative Blue Man Group experience.”
An American performance art company, Blue Man Group formed in 1987 when its original members (Matt Goldman, Phil Stanton, and Chris Wink ) met at an underground production of French symbolist writer Alfred Jarry’s absurdist theatre piece Ubu Roi. Known for the visual uniform of blue-painted skin, skullcaps, and black clothing, the group performs in threes and its shows combine physical theatre, physical comedy, music, stunts, and audience participation to create theatrical productions. The original Blue Man Group trio has since expanded to a cast of seven to nine full-time Blue Men who perform continuing shows in Berlin, Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, New York City, and Orlando, as well as touring internationally. Over the years, Blue Man group has appeared on various TV programs as both characters and performers, as well as releasing multiple studio albums, and contributing to several film scores.
