How did three men with bald, earless, blue heads become an international stage phenomenon? As Blue Man Group celebrates its 25th anniversary, The New York Times notes in an article on November 30, 2016: "Cities with permanent Blue Man productions — Las Vegas; Orlando, Fla.; Boston; Chicago; and New York — declared Nov. 17 'Blue Man Group Day.' Madame Tussauds in Times Square unveiled limited-edition wax figures. There was a party at the Highline Ballroom. And the Blue Men got to flip a switch and turn the Empire State Building blue for a night." Not bad for three guys who started out in bald caps in Central Park.

Happy 25th Anniversary, Blue Man Group!
