After packing the halls of Bartel’s on Wednesday, fifty lucky students boarded the bus to Boston on Saturday Oct. 17 to see the infamous Blue Man Group. After three hours on the bus, UNH students were set loose upon Beantown in search of dinner before the show. As show time neared, students made their way into the Charles Playhouse and found their seats in a theatre covered in strange tubes and decorations.

The first indication that this show would be like no other: students’ seats came equipped with ponchos. For the next hour and forty-five minutes students sat on the edges of their seats, erupting with laughter as music, paint and flying marshmallows filled the theatre. The combination of musical performance, unique stunts, humor and audience participation provided a truly unique and enjoyable experience.

In a finale like no other, students helped unfurl dozens of rolls of toilet paper, engulfing the audience as viewers worked to push it all onto the stage. Students paused outside the theatre to get their pictures taken with the Blue Men before boarding the bus for the long trip home. Arriving back at UNH just before 3 in the morning, the excitement among students was still evident, even if interspersed between yawns and nodding heads.
