IMAX feature film[edit]

Can't believe that 10 days after Variety announced the BMG feature film nobody had yet added it to the article! 59.167.47.19 (talk) 09:20, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

blue school[edit]

All Things Considered, 1 Jan. 2009: program on the group's preschool in NYC, costing $27,000 a student.211.225.37.54 (talk) 12:50, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Lawsuit[edit]

This is a notable news story I think is worth including but I'm really at a loss of where to add it? Perhaps a more experienced editor could add this information in somewhere....

Blue Man Group(s)?[edit]

The article text makes it sound as if there are multiple groups of Blue Men (by listing hiring criteria), but doesn't explicitly state that this is the case. If it is the case, which shows are performed by the original creators and which are not? Jhhays (talk) 20:33, 8 December 2009 (UTC)

  • Indeed there are multiple groups of Blue Men that perform simultaneously at the venue shows, on tours, etc. If I'm not mistaken, the original Blue Men - Phil Stanton, Chris Wink, Matt Goldman - don't perform shows anymore, but I think they do play a major part in running the company as a whole.

The KLF[edit]

Aside from using the KLF's "Last Train to Trancentral" in their shows, the Blue Man Group's "how to be a rock star" / "rock concert moves" also implicitly references KLF's "The Manual (How to Have a Number One the Easy Way)" .... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.146.7.39 (talk) 02:22, 24 December 2009 (UTC)

"Labor history" section too long?[edit]

Does the "Labor history" section really need to be as long as it is? This subject is kind of a niche interest, and having labor disputes is hardly unusual for a performance company. 192.119.18.88 (talk) 00:39, 7 April 2013 (UTC)
