The Blue Man Group’s act has been described as a “Comic musical and artistic show featuring lots of audience interaction with the blue-painted cast.”
The Boston-based entertainment company Blue Man Group is a creative organization dedicated to creating excitement-generating experiences for the audience for the past 25 years.
They are currently touring Jeddah under the auspices of the General Entertainment Authority (GEA) and their show opened on July 1 as part of the Jeddah Season, to an enthusiastic welcome from families, especially children.
Jonathan Screnci, Resident General Manager of the group, explained the concept behind the show, in an interview: “It is these three individuals who are put on blue makeup. The concept behind the Blue Man Group is that the character is in every man. So the Blue Man is in you and the Blue Man is in me.
“And the Blue Man’s job is to encounter the world innocently like a child, experience it and share that curiosity, enthusiasm, the exuberance, the happiness, and create that exchange between themselves and the audience.”
Regarding the show’s run in Jeddah until July 18, he said: “It will be an amazing time for the whole family.”
“The audience members were enthusiastic about the show. We try to ease their entry and experience at the event. We get so happy when we see that they leave the show with so much excitement,” said one of the female organizers at the event.
“I’m honored to have taken part in something like this and happy that a global event like this was being held in our country. Hopefully, it goes on and better things happen in the future,” said another female organizer at the Blue Man Group event.
The “Jeddah Season: Sea & Culture,” is an entertainment festival taking place in Saudi Arabia’s city of Jeddah from June 8 until July 18. The festival offers visitors activities, performances, events, and culinary experiences and aims to boost the city’s tourism.
