A great show for humor, laughs, and light hearted event. Sat in balcony, left side.... A bit hard to see with thin railing in front. Visually in sync with music and lights. Definitely a fun night out!!

This venue sells $50 seats from which you CANNOT SEE THE SHOW! While on a trip from out of state my husband and I took our children to this (silly) show only to find we could see nothing without contorting our bodies and straining our necks. What a complete waste of time and money. (The owner of the theater refused... More

I took a friend and his eight year old boy to Blue Man. I have seen them SEVEN times over the years (Boston and Orlando). The eight year old was looking so forward to this and was not disappointed. We were in the front row, side, but the theater is small and don't believe there is a bad seat in... More

I expected more musicality and less slapstick. The drumming was good but the ideas they integrated were juvenile i.e. Putting a chewed up mouthful of marshmallows into a guest's purse and vomit skits. My son loved it but once was plenty.

Did you know you can submit a special request (email) to the Blue Man Group, and if it's accepted, they work it into their introduction? We submitted a birthday request, and it was honored. Nothing like a whole theater full of people yelling happy birthday to your favorite 16 year old! What a delightful matinee. My only complaint? I wish... More

My husband and I have seen the BMG many times but we wanted to take our 9 and 6 year old. They loved it! Laughed at ago the silliness and enjoyed the paint drumming. It's worth the ticket price for the experience. We loved meeting them after the show!

This has been a long time want of mine to see them. Loved it. Hope to go again. Little theater so you don't have to spend the extra money on close seating tickets any where you sit is close enough to totally enjoy the show.

We had a great time seeing BMG for the first time at the Charles Playhouse. Seating-wise, we were in the orchestra level in the back. I don't think there is a bad seat in the house. I would never pay $150 to sit and be sprayed with paint and other things, but that's just me. We paid $80 plus service... More

Constant motion of actors keeps you spellbound. This is a great show for all ages! All seats good for viewing. Reasonably priced.

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
