Entitled "Blue Man Group: Inside the Tube," the 90-minute program features footage from the award-winning group's live shows. Blue Man Group creators Matt Goldman, Phil Stanton and Chris Wink host the program.
In "Inside the Tube," press notes state, "the three founders discuss the improbable journey they took from building drums and tube instruments in their living room to having one of the most popular shows in Las Vegas, a gold album, and a successful arena-sized rock tour. The program takes an intimate look inside Blue Man Group's unique creative process and provides never before revealed insight into some of the underlying themes of their work. The founders also cite some of their influences, including a public PBS program that impacted them at a pivotal moment in their career."
Co-creator Stanton said in a statement, "We cherish this opportunity to contribute something to a network that has contributed so much to our own creative development over the years. We're proud to become part public television's body of work and we have worked very hard to live up to their tradition of providing thoughtful, innovative and compelling programming."
The original stage show Blue Man Group: Tubes still plays at the Astor Place Theatre, 434 Lafayette St. in New York City. For more information on all Blue Man Group shows, visit the website at www.blueman.com
