Blue Man Group]
while in boston, we went to this show, blue man group. i didn't really know what to expect...i had seen billboards and advertisements with them before, but didn't know what did these blue guys DO? (and i also used to think they were a little creepy looking.) well, i don't anymore. they were just so funny, and interesting, and UNPREDICTABLE, and we had a great time at the show. if you get a chance to ever see them, you should. at the end of the show we saw, they did the paper thing that is on this video, but they also had some enormous white beach balls that the audience played with, kinda like when someone brings one out at a ballgame, except no one takes it away from you there! it was so chaotic, with the paper streamers shooting out everywhere, and the giant beach balls floating overhead, and those big plastic tubes twisting above us as well. some of them got caught in the paper streamers and there was paper twisted up in those too...at some point i was waist deep in paper! one of my favorite parts was something they call "drumbone", a percussion instrument made of large PVC piping, you can find it on youtube as well.
