One of the world’s most unique theatrical experiences will come to town when the UGA Performing Arts Center presents Blue Man Group Nov. 6-7.

Both shows begin at 8 p.m. at the Classic Center Theatre in downtown Athens.

Blue Man Group is best known for multimedia performances that feature three bald and blue characters who take the audience on a journey that is funny, intelligent and visually stunning, accompanied by a live band.

While Blue Man Group has enjoyed successful engagements in cities such as New York, Las Vegas and Berlin, this will be the show’s first U.S. national tour.

“People may ask why it’s taken more than 20 years for us to mount a theatrical tour,” says Blue Man co-founder Matt Goldman. “The answer is simple: We wanted to get it right. As we prepare to bring our show to new audiences across the country, we needed to make sure we incorporated all of the knowledge we have gained over the years to make the most entertaining and emotionally powerful production ever.”

Tickets are $39 to $79 with discounts for UGA students and groups. Tickets can be purchased through the UGA Performing Arts Center box office at 706-542-4400, toll free at 888-289-8497, or online at

Tickets can also be purchased through the Classic Center box office at 706-357-4444 or online at
