As mom to a child with special needs, new environments can be pretty scary for our family. I’m a big fan of the Blue Man Group show at Universal Orlando Resort, but I’ve always been hesitant to take Molly to the show. It’s a loud, upbeat, exciting show — and for a kiddo that is unsure about loud situations, we’ve usually skipped it during our visits.
I was so excited to hear that the Blue Man Group Orlando is putting on a special, autism-friendly performance benefiting the Autism Speaks foundation on December 5, 2015 at the 6 p.m. show.
For one night only, the Blue Man Group will have a slightly modified show making it an enjoyable experience for those that need to experience the show in a new environment.
What to Expect at the Show
Some of the changes include —
- Reduction of sound and light levels at various moments during the performance. Light levels will be reduced, but just a note that there will be strobe lighting during the show.
- Sound reducing headphones available upon request
- Blue Men will limit the amount of “chair walking” and keep their approach to the audience more subdued
- Calming environments in the theatre’s lobby for families seeking a break from the excitement
Buy Tickets to the Show
I’m excited about this show and so happy to hear that a portion of the proceeds will benefit Autism Speaks foundation.
