Blue Man Group reveals long-awaited return to Orlando with new residency

The Blue Man Group is making its long-awaited return to Orlando with a new home and a new residency!

The popular performance company, known for its music, art and comedy productions performed by a trio of "Blue Men" whose skin is painted blue, will soon call ICON Park home starting in late 2024. It's the Blue Man Group's return to the City Beautiful after a three-year break that started in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Before that, they were in Orlando for 14 years.

"Our fans are eager for the Blue Men to be part of their Orlando vacations, and our creative team is thrilled to create a new type of experience that is even more immersive and personalized to Orlando."
