The Blue Man Group was founded in 1987 by three friends. These friends, Matt Goldman, Phil Stanton and Chris Wink worked together to create the ultimate show. The currently renamed show Bluephoria, which has won awards opened in 1991 at the Astor Place Theatre in New York City. Additional shows were opened in Boston and Chicago. However, it was not until the year 2000, when Blue Man Group opened its biggest production ever in Las Vegas. This show opened in the Luxor Theatre to a crowd of 1,200.
The Blue Man Group quickly became the "must see" for those who visited Las Vegas. Additional shows in Toronto, Berlin, and London have made Blue Man Group an International success. Though the show started in NYC with just the three original Blue Men, the Las Vegas show, and all other subsequent productions have grown to include 60+ Blue Men and over 50 musicians.
Since the shows have become such a success, Blue Man has since released a CD, “AUDIO”. This CD was released in 1999 through Virgin Records. Blue Man Group has also composed a television score for the hit FOX television show, The Jury. Additionally the group created their first film, a short called Exhibit 13 in response to 9/11.
