Blue Man Group is a global entertainment phenomenon, known for its award-winning theatrical productions, iconic characters, and multiple creative explorations. We here in the New England area are fortunate to have Blue Man Group Boston. I personally have great memories of seeing their show with friends when I was younger. Now I can share this experience with my own kids including Lil Man thanks to partnerships with Autism Speaks who work with The Blue Man Group to make it so everyone can attend and enjoy their show. And to add to the excitement of the upcoming sensory-friendly production, I have a Family 4 Pack of tickets to giveaway!
Blue Man Group performances are euphoric celebrations of human connection through art, music, comedy and non-verbal communication. Since debuting at New York’s Astor Place Theatre in 1991, the live show has expanded to additional domestic residencies in Boston, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Orlando, an international residency in Berlin, and multiple North American and World tours reaching more than 35 million people worldwide. Blue Man Group is universally appealing to a broad range of age groups and cultural backgrounds and continually injected with new music, fresh stories, custom instruments, and sensory stimulating graphics.
AUTISM FRIENDLY SHOW
Blue Man Group Boston staff worked closely with the New England chapter of Autism Speaks to make slight modifications for the autism-friendly performance including adjusting sound and light levels at various moments. The Blue Men will keep their approach to the audience more subdued and limit the amount of direct interaction with the audience. Foam earplugs are also available upon request.
“We are thrilled to work with Blue Man Group Boston, so our community can enjoy a sensory-friendly presentation of the Blue Man performance experience,” said Jill Precopio, Executive Director, New England Chapter of Autism Speaks. “The entire Boston team is committed to making this performance comfortable for individuals on the spectrum and their families. Because of this our families look forward to this show each year.”
Blue Man Group Boston has also partnered with Yogibo to provide a comfortable lounge area in the Charles Playhouse for families seeking a break from the excitement.
“We are honored to once again partner with Autism Speaks to bring our show to this community,” said Jonathan Screnci, Resident General Manager, Blue Man Group Boston. “We have worked with them to modify the show in a way that doesn’t change the content, but provides a more comfortable environment for this audience to enjoy our unique style of art and music.”
Blue Man Group Boston has announced its 5th annual special autism-friendly performance which will be held on Saturday, October 19th at 11:00 am.
Tickets are discounted for this show and are $30, $40 and $50 with $5 from every ticket benefitting Autism Speaks. In addition, Blue Man Group Boston will also be collecting donations for Autism Speaks during the month of October.
