The show was, in a word, awesome.

Of course, I have to compare to The Complex, which was my entire Blue Man experience to date, and I'll start by saying that the theater show isn't better or worse, it's just different. Some elements do overlap, but they take strong advantage of the fact that it's in a fixed theater environment. Probably the biggest difference is that it's less music oriented. I mean, there's a ton of music, but it's not the vocal driven stuff, and there's a lot of comedy in between.

There is a lot of visual trickery that surprises you or just makes you smile. It's neat stuff.

I don't really want to talk too much about the show because I want people who go see it to be surprised. It's really an amazing experience.

As it turns out, because the show wasn't even nearly sold-out, they upgraded me to the 15th row instead of the balcony. The people around me paid $30 more. Sucks to be them. I think that they've priced the show a little high. It's a good show for sure, but over a hundred bucks you expect Celine Dion or Barry Manilow. It's worth it to me, but I think the general public sees the show as too expensive.

I'm going to go see it again. Sooner than later!

Saw them at CES in January '05 when they were at the Luxor. My face was sore from smiling so long for at least a week.

I am so glad that you enjoyed it!

I frequent Briar Street Theatre (Chicago) to see them and have always wanted to go to Vegas to experiance Bluephoria... :)
