Blue Man Surprise

How many shows have you seen where the cast and crew toss marshmallows, spit paint, regurgitate twinkies, hail taxis and greet you outside the front door at the end? That's exactly what happened the other night when I checked out the Blue Man Group at the Panasonic Theatre.

I know there's been lots of controversy about this show. I'll leave it up to each one of you to decide whether the beefs from the Canadian Actors' Equity Association, the Toronto Musicians' Association and IATSE have any merits. What is evident though is that despite the lack of union involvement, the Blue Man Group has succeeded in putting on an interactive, surprising and all around amazing show.
