I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Blue Man Group

We were not financially compensated for this post. We received free tickets for review purposes. The opinions expressed here are our own based on our experience attending a performance of the show.

What: Blue Man Group

Where: Astor Place Theatre
             434 Layfayette Street
            New York, New York
           (and various other locations around the country)

Who: 6 and up

Our view: If you want to see something completely unique, we would highly recommend Blue Man Group. Where else can you see a show that involves among other things paint, gumballs, and giant rolls of toilet paper. From the moment, you walk in until the moment, you leave you will be  thoroughly amused. In fact, the whole hour and a half show feels like it passes by in an instant. It is that entertaining. We wouldn't recommend the show for very young children and/or anyone who is easily frightened. The show itself is really not scary. However, just the fact that the Blue Men have completely blue skin may be scary to some children who are easily frightened. Children who do not scary easily will love the show because even if they do not understand everything that is going on, it will keep them amused. Children can relate to the Blue Men. They are like big kids.They do things that most kids would love to do, but would get in trouble if they did. The show is very noisy with a lot of very loud music throughout. So, if you are sensitive to noise keep that in mind. However, if you don't mind a little noise and you are looking for a fun time by all means go see Blue Man Group.

And that's our view. Tune in to tomorrow's Talking Topics for more about Blue Man Group.
