My friends and I decided to go see BMG as part of our girls' weekend. We Ubered to the theatre from our hotel. Glad we did because I think parking would have been a challenge and it was quite a fair distance. We weren't sure...More

Always a good show for family. Great music with enough to keep the showing moving along. Should offer more snacks like popcorn or movie theater type snacks. They offer beverages, including alcohol, and a bag of pretzels for snacks. Show is about 90 minutes.

What a waste of money and time! It was so staged right down to the people they chose from the audience who were obvious plants...stupid, dumb, and juvenile unless you haven't been to any other show ever....

I saw a small clip on YouTube thinking this would be cool to see. I ordered $210 worth of tickets, spent $30 to park, and $80 in gas to drive 4.5 hours one way. Went with my husband and 19 year old son. I thought...More

What a great experience. Just a fun, artistic performance that is perfectly timed and setup. From the credits at the beginning based on audience facebook and other social media to the required poncho for those in front (Go Ahead, Sit In The Front). Would highly...More

I took my daughter and 2 granddaughters (ages 9 and 14). Everybody loved the show. Lots of noisy drums, interaction with the audience, unexpected surprises. The Blue Men are energetic, sweet, (a little scary), but that is part of the fun. The ending is a...More

We loved this show! It was so creative, funny and thoroughly off the wall. It is a definite must do while in Chicago and fun for all ages. We found the cheapest tickets on TripAdvisor and the seats were great.

In all fairness, had we not seen the Vegas production, this one might have been exciting. However, it was a let down. The venue was second-rate in all respects. Far less drums and paint-splattering than BMG is generally famous for. Wish we had found something...More

We took the CTA 22 bus from downtown- which was very convenient and less expensive! Only had to walk a couple minutes when we got off at Clark & Berry.

I think you actually do see a bit better when you're a bit further back. In Chicago, the first rows are below stage level, and there are things to watch the length and breadth of the stage. You do have a better overall... More
