The Blue Man Group Theatre (previously named the Blue Man Group Sharp Aquos Theatre until 2012) was an indoor theatre located at Universal Orlando Resort's CityWalk, which housed a live show and residency by the Blue Man Group, featuring their unique musical and humorous performances. It opened on June 6, 2007 in the former Nickelodeon Studios building, which was re-zoned into Universal CityWalk Orlando. As a stand-alone experience within CityWalk, it required separate admission from the theme parks.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic in Florida, the Blue Man Group Theatre closed along with the rest of the resort in March 2020. Performances were put on hiatus when the resort re-opened later that year. In February 2021, the Blue Man Group announced they would be ending their residency.

This was my first time experiencing the show. What I was expecting it to be about was more music with paint, comical skits loud strobe music. Although the show had that it was a very little portion. The other half of the show was the blue men chewing food then spitting it at the crowd, or putting something that was in their mouth in a lady’s very nice, expensive purse, and spitting out something in one of the audiences bare hand. It was very disturbing. There was probably only two or three times out of the hour and 45 minute show that they used paint with the drums. And being in the “splash zone” you don’t get any paint on you, if anything it’s food that they were spitting on you. I feel bad for the people that paid way more to be in the front because before the show started they offered people in the back to move up to the front for free. All in all it was funny at times but other than the few moments of humor it was very gross. Definitely would not recommend spending the various high amounts of money for the show.

The people leaving these bad reviews must have seen a different show than I did. I’ve wanted to see this act since I was very young and it did not disappoint at all. I didn’t realize how funny the show is. The comedy was perfectly timed and the audience interaction was superb. (I say this as a former professional comedy theatre actor). The lighting displays were phenomenal and the band was fantastic. I’m one of those generally stone faced stoic guys but I felt like I was 5 again that night. Definitely would go again. I was in the “poncho section” but nothing too gross happened.

I had always wanted to see the blue man group, so during my visit I decided to fork out the money and treat myself. I thoroughly enjoyed this show. It's clever and funny and entertaining. Book well in advance as tickets go relatively quickly, but we were able to pick up tickets the night before the show and still had fairly good seats.

This was our second Blue Man Group experience...the first in Orlando...and it was AWESOME. Making the reservations online was easy. We booked early and found the exact seats we wanted (poncho 1, center seats). Ticket pickup at the window was quick and easy. The staff was awesome throughout the whole experience. The concessions were great. The staff quickly directed us to our seats..no issues. The ponchos were pre-positioned at our seats...good call. The show was incredible. Great performances, music, and crowd interaction. Our kids (8 & 13) loved it! Departure after the show was smooth and organized. It was really cool that all three BMG performers and the band were waiting outside to take pictures with the attendees. Great selection of merchandise outside with fair prices. All in all an awesome experience. THANKS!

Good show but they need to do a better job of monitoring/controlling loud and obnoxious people who attend these shows and disrupt others. Had a group of people behind us that were extremely loud and rude during the show and had no assist assistance from the theatre staff to keep them quiet. Not even a warning was given to them by the staff however multiple attendees were intervening. I won't be coming back.

Absolutely fantastic! Something completely new, tickets are quite pricey, but if your coming to universal studios you have already accepted that fate! The cast will be outside at the end of the show (maintaining character) for photo's. A bit of music and comedy rolled into one, well worth a spare evening of you haven't planned anything already!

This is an unbelievable show. The performance is spectacular. The performers stay until everybody has a chance to take a picture with them. My kids couldn't stop talking about it as we left.

Lots of energy, incredible dancing, literally stunning. We were in the last row and the seats were amazing!!! Would not recommend for young kids though, esp. if the are sensitive to loud noises and flashing lights

The Blue Man Group are most known for doing a percussion show but they are funny, and interactive with the audience; all while not saying a word. I can definitely say that this is one of the best shows I've ever seen. I HIGHLY recommend going to see this.

Loved it! The show was very creative, with great music that sometimes got really loud. The Blue men often went out into the audience and chose a couple different people to participate in their skits. It's a really colorful show, great humor, and often time very artistic. Quite a few different skits and everyone in our group really enjoyed themselves. Funny how they treated late arrivals and people who got up to get food or go to the bathrooms. There is a food and drink counter (alcohol served) and members of the band were in the lobby after the show to take pictures with. Overall, a lot of fun.

Good show. Keeps you going and high energy. My daughter enjoyed it a lot it was loud. Fun enjoyable if you never have seen I would check it out ,shop around find your discounts online. Almost all seats have a good view not a large room so don’t really need to spend more to enjoy the show from any seat.

It was AMAZING!!! This was the most hilarious, interactive and entertaining events I've ever been to. My daughter was selected to participate in the show and she had the time of her life!!! We cant wait to go again. Anyone visiting Orlando should attend this event.

I absolutely love the show! It had a perfect mixture of fun, weirdness, and overall energy. I also found the group to be very interactive with the audience and I truly mean every member of the audience.Surprisingly, this show is great for all ages, at least kids 7+. It’s an experience worth the price.
