NEW YORK, May 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - Blue Man Group, the worldwide entertainment phenomenon, proudly presents the launch of Becoming Blue, the first-of-its-kind mini-documentary series that takes viewers on a seven-episode journey inside the Blue Man Group training process. The original content series, filmed entirely at the Blue Man Group training studios, and Astor Theatre, in New York City, documents six aspiring Blue Men, selected from more than 1,000 applicants, as they embark on an intense eight-week training course to ultimately join the permanent casts of Blue Man Group's current resident shows and tours.
"This series, told through the perspective of six incredibly talented actors, represents the most intimate look into the development of the Blue Man character that we have ever offered to audiences," said Randall Jaynes, Artistic Director, Blue Man Group, and Lead Blue Man Trainer. "We are not just giving a sneak peek into our process, but rather taking Blue Man Group's theme of audience interaction to a whole new level and embarking on a journey with these trainees as they both succeed and struggle to bring the character to life."
"What the actors don't expect is a challenging journey of personal exploration into the most childlike and vulnerable versions of themselves," Jaynes added.
Following the series finale, Blue Man Group will host a Live Facebook Q&A on June 27th with Randall Jaynes and Blue Man Group Casting Director Tascha Van Auken, and release additional bonus content, including a highlight reel and 'Where are They Now?' segments with the trainees.
