The Boys In Blue

Blue Man Group owes a lot to Peyo and his beloved Schtroumpfs, better known to us Americans as Smurfs. Without Papa, Brainy, Jokey and the whole Smurfy gang (we'll save discussions about Smurfette for a later time), we would probably be hesitant if approached by a strange blue man wielding a pipe. Luckily, Papa Smurf set us straight, so we expect joy, happiness and a bit of mischief from blue beings, and Blue Man Group delivers those things in spades. If you've never seen a Blue Man Group performance or are ready for an encore, then you're in luck, because the A&T Performing Arts Center & Lexus Broadway Series is gifting us with a week of their finest, weirdest and mime-iest holiday performances now through December 30 at the Winspear Opera House, 2403 Flora St. Tickets range $25 to $150.
