For only two weeks, the worldwide phenomenon known as Blue Man Group will be bringing their comedy, theater, rock concert and dance party to Manila. Comprised of three bald and blue performers, BLUE MAN GROUP is well-known for their unique brand of techno colour entertainment. Blue Man Group 2016 World Tour has already made its stops in Singapore, Macau, and next month, they make their mark on Manila.

Phil Stanton, co-founder of Blue Man Group, recalls how it all started: “We were three very close friends interested in finding our own voice through performance while exploring our various interests such as music, comedy, performance and fine art, as well as pop culture”. That was 25 years ago.
“We were living in a time of emerging digital technologies that had the potential to greatly bring people around the world closer, but also had the potential to alienate, and it seemed to beg the question: “What is essentially human?” Though we were not necessarily conscious of it at the time, we landed on three main areas: that people have the need to explore their own individual creativity through life; they need to continue to be curious; and that they need to feel part of a community,” he shares.
The performance that centered on the curious, innocent, Blue Man character turned out to be a groundbreaking performance that left audiences awed. To date, they’ve played to over 35 million people across more than 20 countries and even have permanent shows in Las Vegas, New York, Orlando, Boston, Chicago and Berlin.
Other interesting numbers to digest – during one week of performances the Blue Man relies on 32 pounds of Jell-O, eight boxes of Cap’n Crunch cereal, 96 pieces of white chocolate Toblerone, 240 marshmallows and 40 boxes of Twinkie Lights (don’t worry — each Twinkie has just 130 calories!). Whether eaten or used in the show, that is for you to find out at the Blue Man Group 2016 World Tour in Manila until Sept. 25.
