Blue Man Group, the silent, cerulean-headed trio famed for its inventive ways of producing music and theater using the most unlikely of objects, will return to Tulsa on Jan. 20-22 as part of its “Speechless” tour.

The group’s Tulsa PAC appearance is presented by Celebrity Attractions and Tulsa Performing Arts Center Trust. Tickets will go on sale at a later date.

Blue Man Group developed its “Speechless” tour at the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and will debut the new show Sept. 24 at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles. “Speechless” will feature new and original compositions, invented instruments and unexpected situations alongside iconic Blue Man Group moments based in joy, art, music, comedy, social commentary and profound absurdity.

“By building on the original DNA of Blue Man Group, ‘Speechless’ will forge a path for future generations of the Blue Man tribe to explore,” said Diane Quinn, Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group’s chief creative officer.

“To further challenge themes of invention, curiosity and human connection, we are excited to work with our new director, Jenny Koons, whose expertise in dissolving spatial boundaries and diverse background in theater and activism, set the stage for us to deliver a transformative Blue Man Group experience.”
