Blue Man Group is a world-famous performing arts ensemble marked by their blue-hued costumes, DIY instruments, and wide-eyed curiosity. The group is headed to Purdue on their Speechless World Tour and we couldn’t be more excited! So how hard is it to become a Blue Man? Great question.

According to Blue Man Group, “Every year, more than one thousand talented artists, musicians, actors, and performers audition for [the group]. Statistically less than one percent land the role and become a Blue Man.” So, until they arrive in Elliot in February, learn more about what it takes to become “Blue”.


Feeling Blue yet? Catch the Blue Man Group on their Speechless Tour on February 20th in Elliot Hall of Music!
