For your next family outing, expose your kids to the dramatic arts by taking them to a show that’s like nothing they’ve ever seen. Blue Man Group has been holding down the Astor Place Theatre since 1991, and one glimpse of the sights and sounds here will tell you why. Score a row near the front and your little ones will have a license to get messy, as the seats come with their own protective gear. Alien-like bald blue men will guide your kids through an adventure in accessible performance art. It’s not a play, or a concert, or a circus, but you’ll find a good helping of each. You’ll hear plenty of laughter, and maybe even a squeal of delight, as the painted drums start to pound. By the end, you and your family will be connected with the entire house as the paper grand finale ties everyone together. When it’s over, your kids will never look at Cap’n Crunch the same again. And lock up the blue paint.
