You, too, could be Blue

Rachel Howard, SF Examiner

Can you sing, act, and drum a mean rhythm on plastic piping?

Casting call drums up hopeful applicants for bizarre show


Pat Craig, CONTRA COSTA TIMES

ON THE TENDERLOIN border, where you see luxury hotels in one direction and Tennessee Williams-style street drama unfolding in another, noise is not a stranger.

From the Boston Globe:

<B>Expressing themselves in song and dance<P>Youths take to the stage as a path to mental health</B>

By Don Aucoin, Globe Staff, 5/21/2002

Quote:
BEVERLY - It was hard to say who was pummeling their drums harder, the three members of Blue Man Group or the nine teenagers ranged around them. All the spectators knew for sure was that they could feel the percussive storm in their chests.

Once it subsided, Blue Man Eric Rubbe suggested to Paula Conrad and Stan Strickland that next time the youths could end the piece by thrusting their hands skyward, just as Blue Man Group does. ''That would be nice, to include the kids,'' Conrad instantly replied. The central fact about Conrad and Strickland is this: They are always looking for ways to include the kids in the possibilities of performance.

If there was anything lacking at the Blue Man Group's "Complex Rock Tour" Saturday night at the Rosemont Theatre, I didn't notice.

Blue Man Group for eyes, not ears

They haven't gone as far as Kiss and removed the makeup, but the Blue Man Group has entered into a questionable new phase in its career.

Blueprint for success
By Jeremy Austin for The Stage

The Blue Man Group has shows across the US and has now made its long-awaited West End debut at the New London. The team behind the show shares with Jeremy Austin the philosophy which guides their abstract work

There are a couple of stock - possibly lazy - phrases one should not use when describing the work of the Blue Man Group.

One, performance art, was used by the group itself when it started. It now makes them cringe, they say. The second is mime.

“We tend to avoid that word in training,” says Michael Dahlen, an American currently in the UK to train some of the new ‘Blue Men’ required to perform in the group’s current residency at the New London Theatre.
