Blue Man Group Announces Theatrical Tour for 2010-2011 Season

First-Ever Theatrical Tour Promises New Material and Classic Moments

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 9, 2010) - NETworks Presentations, LLC and Blue Man Productions are pleased to announce a new theatrical touring production set to premiere in the Fall of 2010. Although Blue Man Group has toured previously with its Megastar arena rock show, this marks the first theatrical production of their show to tour North America. The theatrical tour will feature classic Blue Man moments as well as brand new content that will delight audiences and fans young and old. Tour cities and dates will be announced soon.

Blue Man Group on tour will also feature a new physical design that centers around a proscenium-sized LED curtain and high-resolution screen to create 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. Blue Man Group is accompanied by a live band whose haunting tribal rhythms help drive the show to its unforgettable climax.

"NETworks is thrilled to produce this tour," says NETworks CEO Kenneth H. Gentry. "Blue Man Group complements our touring roster by adding a new level of entertainment with its combination of theatricality and multiple-medium performance art."

"People may ask why it's taken more than 20 years for us to mount a theatrical tour," says Blue Man co-founder Matt Goldman. "The answer is simple: We wanted to get it right. As we prepare to bring our show to new audiences across the country, we needed to make sure we incorporated all of the knowledge we have gained over the years to make the most entertaining and emotionally powerful production ever."
