Blue Man Group bringing their magic to Cape Town

Blue Man Group bringing their magic to Cape Town

The internationally acclaimed comedy, theatre and music phenomenon, the Blue Man Group, will be touching down in Cape Town in March for their first ever tour of South Africa. The group’s award winning theatrical production will run at the Grand Arena from March 21 to April 2.

The show combines comedy, theatre, rock concert and a dance party, “making for remarkable entertainment not seen live in South Africa before,” remarks Elouise Matthys, PR and Promotions Manager at GrandWest.

The stage show is best known and recognised for its trio of bald and blue performers. Since its inception in 1991, through collaboration between three friends, Chris Winks, Matt Goldman and Phil Stanton, on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, Blue Man Group has performed in prominent theatres and venues in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Australia, Sweden and the Netherlands amongst others.

The latest theatrical tour showcases classic Blue Man favourites, along with brand new content. Now approaching their 26th year of creativity, this artistic group is continually updating and refreshing Blue Man shows with new music, fresh stories, custom instruments and state of the art audiovisual technology.

“We are honoured to share our show with the people of South Africa and beyond. We believe the Blue Man`s universal message of joyful exuberance and euphoric celebration resonates within all of us,” says Cofounder Chris Wink.

* There are several shows scheduled during the Blue Man Group’s run at the Grand Arena, including a few afternoon shows to accommodate younger fans. Tickets range in price from R340 to R655 at Computicket.
