Thomas Randall, SHRM-CP, PHR, explained, “The Blue Man Group feels art is for everybody and we want to find ways to reach out to the community and with just a few modifications can open doors to groups to come here and feel connected.

The Blue Man Group performs their sensory friendly partnership with The Grant a Gift for Autism once a year, this is our fifth year show for the community. We bend the lighting and sound levels down a little bit to make it softer for their environment and pay close attention to the people in the audience, how they react with each other, making sure they feel comfortable. If somebody does need to take a moment, there are areas outside the showroom where they can take a break or get some earplugs then come back to the show when they are ready.

After five years we have gotten to know what to do for the Foundation and all of their families.”

The Blue Man Group thinks of everything!
