They're Back! Blue Man Group Returns To Luxor Hotel!
Yesterday Thursday, Nov. 12, international entertainment phenomenon Blue Man Group revealed its newly renovated theater inside Luxor Hotel and Casino during an awe-inspiring arrival event and intimate Q&A session with the group’s co-founders.
Returning to where Blue Man Group first took Las Vegas by storm, onlookers were amazed by the award-winning production’s unforgettable entrance. The arrival began with an electrifying drum solo by a Blue Man atop the theater. Moments later, the crowd watched as a pair of the blue performers repelled down the interior of the iconic pyramid before landing in front of the new theater. At the height of the celebration, the trio surprised the crowd by shooting off massive amounts of streamers before revealing the façade of Blue Man Group’s new home.
Following the dramatic entrance, media members were given a first look at the renovated theater including updated lobby, performance space and Blue Man store. Blue Man Group’s Resident General Manager and Vice President Jack Kenn along with MGM Resorts International’s President of Entertainment and Sports Richard Sturm and Luxor’s General Manager Nik Rytterstrom welcomed everyone to the new and improved theater followed by a Q&A session with Blue Man Group’s Co-Founders Chris Wink and Phil Stanton and Creative Director Jeff Turlik.
“I think this is the closest we have ever come to the perfect setting. There’s not a bad seat in the house,” remarked Wink during the Q&A session. “Not only can everyone in the house see well, the Blue Men can make direct eye contact with every single person in the audience at some point during the show, and that’s really part of the intimacy.”
Beginning Nov. 18, Blue Man Group returns to Luxor Hotel and Casino, where they first took Las Vegas by storm. The newly renovated Blue Man Theater has been custom designed for the ideal Blue Man Group experience with audiences closer to the action than ever before. The popular production has been transformed for maximum impact, with new music, new design, new technology, and a new finale created to bring the entire audience together for an unforgettable, euphoric celebration of life in full color.
