Think Blue Man Group went the way of its ’90s percussive theater counterpart Stomp?

Then think again.



Not content to remain a punchline from season two of Arrested Development, the mute, cobalt-hued percussionists have created a whole new show to wow fans of their trademark paint-splattering, fourth wall-breaking theatrical performances.

The show features all new — and often electronic — instruments, but it doesn’t abandon Blue Man trademarks like the PVC pipes that first made them famous. The Blue Men’s latest single “Data Collection” shows they’re up on current events, although we wonder whether the antics in its music video make data mining and the burgeoning surveillance state seem a bit too endearing.



$40-$199, 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22 and Saturday, Nov. 23; 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 23 and Sunday, Nov. 24; 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 24; Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com.
