Joining us will be Blue Man Group co-founder Chris Wink, and we'll be discussing the new album release of "Three," as well as the upcoming "World Tour," and celebrating 25 years of off-broadway bliss and creativity. SUBSCRIBE NOW.

Nearly 25 years ago, three friends fresh out of college made a life-defining decision together. Matt Goldman, Phil Stanton, and Chris Wink determined they would achieve lives of meaning and purpose, forging their own road, following their own path.

When their creative impulses led them to develop a bald and blue character they called Blue Man (to evoke the word Human), more than a few people raised eyebrows. Undeterred, the partners invested their time and resources into following this curious character into a small theatre in New York City. What transpired was a groundbreaking performance that left audiences moved and inspired. Unprecedented theatrical success complete with accolades, awards and genre-jumping opportunities followed.

Blue Man Productions is a now global entertainment company best known for the award-winning Blue Man Group show, performed in 15 countries and seen by more than 35 million people worldwide since 1991. A dynamic combination of music, comedy and technology, the show appeals to a broad range of age groups and cultural backgrounds. It is continually refreshed with new music, new stories, new instruments and new technology. Blue Man Group has permanent theatrical productions in Las Vegas, Orlando, Boston, Chicago, New York and Berlin, and a North/South American Tour. 

This creative collective is part of the pop culture zeitgeist. Beyond the stage show, they have toured the globe with the “Megastar World Tour” rock concert parody, produced 5 albums, and contributed to numerous film scores. They've served as the face of branding campaigns for Intel and TIM/Brasil and appeared countless times on shows like “The Tonight Show”, "Arrested Development", “Ellen”, Schaag-den-Raab (Germany), WOWOW (Japan), and Calderão (Brasil). 

Still artist-owned and operated and based in NYC, Blue Man Productions has extensive production facilities, recording studios and a 6,000 square foot R&D Lab with numerous new creative projects in the pipeline.
