Now, 26 years later, Blue Man Group has resident shows in New York; Chicago; Las Vegas; Boston; and Orlando, Florida. A world tour kicked off last spring, and a U.S. tour spent nearly six years on the road. The group also has three studio albums, and a book was released in October. And as if that isn't enough, the Blue Man Group's show at Universal Orlando Resort intro- duced a new VIP experience in November that allows people to get behind the scenes and the blue makeup. The package is designed to give guests a deeper understanding of the perfor- mance and a hands-on glimpse of what it's like to be a Blue Man, one of 50 who are performing around the world at any given time. Guests who opt for the VIP package get to learn about the group's 26-year history and see some rare photos and company artifacts. Visitors will be able to try out one of the crazy homemade instruments and even have the chance to try on the fluorescent blue stage makeup. The ex- perience includes a guided backstage tour that showcases areas previously off limits to guests. The upgraded package also includes a chance to meet a Blue Man, along with goodies that in- clude a souvenir program and a free download of "Creature Feature" from their latest album, "Three."
