Fodor's Review

The 1839 vintage Charles Playhouse—in its day a church, Prohibition-era speakeasy, and jazz club—has since 1995 hosted the inimitably indigo antics of Blue Man Group, and the zany who-dun-it Shear Madness since 1980. The Blue Men—a spookily exhilarating trio of deadpan performance artists painted vivid cobalt—pound drums, share eureka moments, spray sloppy good will, and freely dispense toilet paper to clean up. (First-timer alert: dress casual, especially if you're seated down front.)
