Blue Man Group+UB= An Epic Day in Chicago!

Annually, merit scholars (students receiving a B+ or better) of the Upward Bound Summer Academy are rewarded with a cultural excursion. This year, students were provided a unique theatrical experience – The Blue Man Group.

With a dynamic combination of music, comedy, and technology, Blue Man Group delivered an unforgettable multi-sensory experience. With the clever usage of household products ranging from pipes to Twinkies and toilet paper, students were provided with a sense of comedy and creativity. Post-performance students were able to get photos with the creators Matt Goldman, Phil Stanton, and Chris Wink where they reminded students to pursue their dreams. ‘This all started nearly 25 years ago. We wanted to live with meaning and purpose our way and this [Blue Man Group] is the product. Live your dreams.’
