An open casting call is scheduled for Tuesday, April 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Briar Street Theatre (3133 N. Halsted St.).  The casting department is searching for talented performers with the unique combination of qualities to be a Blue Man for its existing and upcoming productions and multimedia projects.
The Blue Man cast features performing artists with a diverse mix of disciplines: classically-trained actors, rock musicians and dancers.  Once cast, the new Blue Men will have the opportunity to perform in one of the nine ongoing theatrical productions in Chicago, New York, Boston, Las Vegas, Orlando, Berlin, Tokyo and on tour throughout the U.S. In addition, the Blue Men can be seen onboard the new Norwegian Epic by Norwegian Cruise Line – the Official Cruise Line of Blue Man Group.
The Blue Man Group open casting calls have been instrumental in finding the next generation of wide-eyed explorers of contemporary civilization.  In the most recent Chicago open casting call, a Chicago local, Nick Rush, auditioned and now performs as one of the ever-curious and creative Blue Men at the Briar Street Theatre, where the production was recently updated with critically hailed new material.
What does it take to be a Blue Man?   Blue Man is an egoless, genderless being.  Male and female performers are encouraged to audition.  All necessary audition equipment will be provided.  The basic criteria for Blue Man performers are:

  • Height between 5’10” and 6’1” tall (athletic build)
