September 19, 2013 (Green Bay, Wis.) – NETworks Presentations, LLC and Blue Man Productions are pleased to announce a new theatrical touring production will visit Green Bay at the Weidner Center for the Performing Arts from October 21 to October 23, 2013. For tickets visit Ticket Star at 1-800-895-0071 or online at WeidnerCenter.com.
The theatrical tour features brand new content highlighted by classic Blue Man favorites.
The new sound, set, and video design centering around a proscenium-sized LED curtain and high-resolution screen create an entirely new, high-impact visual experience for Broadway houses across the nation.
The critically acclaimed Blue Man Group creates experiences that defy categorization. Blue Man Group is best known for multi-media performances that feature three bald and blue characters who take the audience on a journey that is funny, intelligent and visually stunning. A live band, whose haunting tribal rhythms help drive the show to its climax, accompanies the Blue Men.
“In order to create a touring version of our theatrical production, we knew we had a creative challenge to tackle,” says Blue Man Group Co-Founder Philip Stanton. “We needed to find a way to transform theatres of all shapes and sizes into spaces in which the Blue Man can intimately connect with the audience, where the audience can become engaged with the spirit of the show and the Blue Man himself. We think we have finally figured it out, and hopefully we will accomplish our goal, which is always to help audience members reconnect with their own sense of wonder and discovery, with their own sense of what is possible in their lives.”
The Weidner Center for the Performing Arts, located near the center of UW-Green Bay’s bayshore campus on the northeast side of the city of Green Bay, is known for its elegant design and the acoustic excellence of its 2,000-seat main hall, Cofrin Family Hall. It also houses two smaller performance spaces, the Fort Howard recital hall and the Jean Weidner Theatre, along with a dance studio and Grand Foyer. The Center is a home for UW-Green Bay Music and Theatre and Dance productions, the Green Bay Symphony Orchestra, community events and productions, and performances by visiting artists and touring companies.
