Blue Man Group on Stage at Monte Carlo Resort & Casino[/caption]From the perspective of a fan of Blue Man Group that has been on this journey with the company, actors and performers for over twelve years now, and to accurately describe my feelings and emotions after seeing the brand new production is the most challenging thing I've ever done. Not only is the new show loaded with tons of new material, but the compositions and musical pieces have all been tweaked, redone or are brand new. So to better describe this new show for you, let's start from the top, the pre-show and seating as you enter the theater.
Walking into the new Blue Man Group Theater, I immediately was whisked away by the music that was playing during seating. Never before have I heard such a surreal and enchanting piece of Blue Man style music, but added flare of new age and tribal highlights. I'm not even sure what the new seating music is called, but I fully understand why the previous used music "Dulcimer" is no longer part of the show, it just doesn't fit the scale of this technological wonder of a production. I could literally close my eyes, and be taken away by the music itself, and then I noticed the walls moving. New HD projection technology, which is frequently seen in theme parks from Disney to Universal, is now a part of the pre-show spectacle. The side columns become animated, and part of the show itself, which is an awesome highlight and detail.
