What is Blue Man Group?
Blue Man Group is a spectacular collision of music, comedy, theater and dance party. It’s an unforgettable celebration of living life in full color. Backed by a live rock band, three bald and blue men explore our cultural norms with wide-eyed wonder. They poke fun at our collective quirks and remind us of how much we all have in common. It’s a joyful multi-sensory experience that has captivated more than 35 million people of all ages worldwide.
How long does it take a Blue Man to prepare before the show? What is the make-up the Blue Men put on their faces?
It takes a Blue Man approximately one hour to get in costume and prepare physically for the show. The Blue Men wear a specially colored grease paint on their heads, which never dries. This effect allows the Blue Men to maintain that wet, gooey, just-stepped-out-of-a-painting look throughout the show.
Where is the Blue Man Group Theater Located?
The Blue Man Group Theater is located in Universal CityWalk™ between the Hard Rock Cafe® and the main entrance to Universal Studios Florida™.
Do I need theme park admission to experience the show?
No, you can purchase tickets to see Blue Man Group without admission to the theme parks.

How long is the show?

What happens if we are running late?
Late guests are seated at the discretion of House Management at a time when they will not interrupt the show.
What age group is appropriate for the show?
We recommend the show to children ages 3 and older due to the percussive music and movement of the performers and props in the auditorium. It is up to the Box Office or Front of House Manager to admit children under the age of 3 into the theater. Children under age 3 are admitted at no charge, however they will be required to sit on the lap of their parent or guardian.
Is there a dress code?
There is no dress code. We suggest you wear comfortable attire and to avoid wearing anything that needs to be dry cleaned. In rare cases, some onstage substances can make their way into the auditorium.
What is the poncho section?
The poncho section is made up of the first four rows of seats closest to the stage. It is the most interactive seating section of the show. Guests seated in this area are provided a plastic poncho to protect their clothing from any materials that may occasionally splash from the stage. All substances used in the show are washable. We suggest you avoid wearing anything that needs dry cleaning.
Sitting in the poncho section does not guarantee that you will get splashed. We provide ponchos solely as a precaution.
What is the Premium section?
Treat yourself to the best seats in the house. These exclusive seats are in the front and center of the theater, directly behind the “Poncho” section.
