There’s an Interactive Blue Man Group Installation Heading to the Museum of the City
The international sensation Blue Man Group will be honored by the city it was founded in and still calls home. This summer, the Museum of the City of New York unveils the interactive installation Blue Man Group: Ready…Go!. The new exhibition invites visitors to play on the actual, original percussive pipe instrument constructed from PVC piping. The enormous three-part piece is on loan from the Blue Man Group archives and will be available for play July 19 through September 2.
Guests will also learn about BMG’s New York city origins and take a look at the world through the eyes of a Blue Man. Check out the exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York and see the iconic Blue Man Group live off-Broadway at Astor Place Theatre.

In 1991, a trio of bald, blue, and silent figures took up residence downtown in the Astor Place Theatre, and ever since, the group has been captivating audiences young and old with their curiosity, strangeness, and inclination to turn even the most mundane of objects into a musical instrument. One of the centerpieces of the show is a three-part percussive piece made out of PVC tubing. After 27 years, the original instrument was retired from stage life. Before traveling to its final resting place, the pipes will stop over for six weeks at the Museum of the City of New York - beginning July 19th! With Blue Man Group: Ready…Go! visitors learn about the group’s New York City origins, and have the opportunity to bang on a tube while taking a look at the world through the eyes of the Blue Man. : Lindsey Best
