Blue Man Group and its partners are committed to providing a safe environment for all our patrons, performers, and staff. In a time of rapidly changing regulations and recommendations, we will always operate in compliance with State and local requirements, as well as with CDC recommendations where appropriate.

All patrons 12 years or older will need to show proof of vaccination at check-in.

Exceptions are being made for patrons with a medical condition or closely held religious belief that prevents vaccination. These guests must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time, or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance start time. 

 Proof of vaccination can be in the form of the CDC card, a clear photocopy of this card, or a clear mobile phone photo. It must show that you have completed your vaccination, and that at least 2 weeks have elapsed since your final dose. If you were vaccinated in another country, please contact our box office so that we may determine what type of proof will be required. Proof of a negative COVID-19 test must show your name, the date and time of the test, the type of test taken and the results. These may be presented on paper or digitally.

 Following CDC guidance, masks will be required for all patrons regardless of vaccination status.  

We thank you in advance for your patience as our staff adapts and responds to the latest rules.
