Onstage: Blue Man Group

 When most people get the blues, they end up feeling glum. I predict that everyone who gets the blues this week or next — in the form of the Blue Man Group — will leave the Aronoff Center in downtown Cincinnati with a smile on his or her face. In fact, publicity for this first-time touring production promises that you’ll be in “a blissful, euphoric state.” This unusual entertainment combines comedy, music and technology — and absolutely no spoken language. For more than two decades, three guys in blue latex makeup have been astonishing and delighting audiences with rhythmic percussion, visual gags, audience participation and a stage full of tomfoolery. If you’ve never seen Blue Man, well, you need to. And if you have, I’m pretty sure you’ll be catching them again. $28-$78. Wednesday-Sunday. Through Oct. 28. Aronoff Center, 650 Walnut St., Downtown. 513-621-2787, cincinnatiarts.org.
