Sept. 21, 2010 - PRLog -- NETworks Presentations, LLC and Blue Man Productions are pleased to announce a new theatrical touring production will stop in Dayton from September 28 to October 3. Tickets are on sale NOW at Ticket Center Stage, located in the Wintergarden of the Benjamin and Marian Schuster Performing Arts Center, by phone at 937/228-3630, toll free at 888/228-3630 or online at Blue Man Group kicks off the Victoria Theatre Association’s 2010-2011 Miami Valley & Good Samaritan Hospitals Broadway Series.

Although Blue Man Group has toured previously with its Megastar arena rock show, this marks the first theatrical production to tour North America. The theatrical tour features classic Blue Man moments as well as brand new content. Dayton is the second stop on this new tour.

Blue Man Group on tour also features a new physical design centering around a proscenium-sized LED curtain and high-resolution screen creating an entirely new visual experience for Broadway houses across the nation.

The critically acclaimed Blue Man Group creates experiences that defy categorization. Blue Man Group is best known for multi-media performances that feature three bald and blue characters who take the audience on a journey that is funny, intelligent and visually stunning. A live band, whose haunting tribal rhythms help drive the show to its climax, accompanies the Blue Men.

“Until now, we have never mounted a touring version of our theatrical production,” says Blue Man Group co-founder Philip Stanton. “The main reason for this is we needed to find a way to transform theatres of all shapes and sizes into spaces in which the Blue Man can intimately connect with the audience, where the audience can become engaged with the spirit of the show and of the Blue Man himself.  We think we have finally figured it out, and an audience member in a theatre that seats 4,500 people or so will now be able to enjoy the same intimate experience that might be had in one of our smaller theatres. Our goal with this production, as with all of our productions, is to help audience members reconnect with their own sense of discovery, with their own sense of what is possible in their lives."
