Blue Man Group is proud to announce the return of its annual sensory-friendly performance in Chicago Sunday, September 24 at 4 p.m. Slight modifications will be made to the performance at the Briar Street Theatre in order to create a sensory-friendly show that better accommodates individuals and families affected by autism. As part of the audience offerings for the sensory-friendly performance, the Briar Street Theatre will be transformed into a calming environment complete with bean bags, dim lighting and quiet corners for anyone seeking a sensory break from the excitement of the show. 

Blue Man Group has partnered with Sloomoo Institute, an experiential destination in River North that taps into the joy of multi-sensory play through hand-crafted artisanal slime, to host pre-show sensory play activations utilizing its signature slime and kinetic sand in the theater lobby. All audience members will also receive a complimentary 1-ounce jar of slime to take home with them post-show. During the performance, sound levels will be reduced at select moments and noise reducing headphones will be available for individuals upon request. 

Tickets to this special performance are now available for $49 with a portion of sales from every ticket purchased donated to the local autism advocacy organization Turning Pointe Autism Foundation.
