Weekend Happenings: We’ve Got the Blues & Lots More to Do, Too
The world-renowned experimental musical theater troupe, The Blue Man Group,begin a week-long stay at Caesars Atlantic City this weekend!
Equal parts play, concert, and sketch routine, the Blue Man Group combined sight gags, physical stunts, and audience participation, with members of the front rows given plastic rain ponchos as protection from the hail of paint, food, and other assorted projectiles launched from the stage.
If you’ve never been blue…it’s something you should do! Don’t miss the Blue Man Group this week live at Caesars.
