    Blue Man Group

    On Saturday, June 20, 2015 at 11am, minor production changes will make the Blue Man Group show more sensory-friendly, including the reduction of sound and light levels at select moments along with a social story available here.  In addition, audience supports will be in place, including:

  • Headphones available
  • Trained volunteers
  • Calming area
  • Judgment-free environment
  • Blue Man co-founder Phil Stanton: "We've heard from many families affected by autism that their children responded to the Blue Man character in a very moving way.  We don't know the exact reason.  We can only speculate that it has to do with the Blue Men communicating in their own unique way — non-verbally, through visuals, touch and sound."

    All tickets to the 11am June 20, 2015 performance are offered at a discounted rate with Blue Man donating $5 of every ticket to Autism Speaks.

    Purchase tickets here.  Click on "find tickets" and enter the promo code AUTISMSPEAKS.  Groups of 15 or more, please call (617) 542-6700.
