Blue Man Group to Switch Vegas Casinos

The Blue Man Group has announced the group's Las Vegas production will switch to a different casino in the fall of 2012.

MGM Resorts International announced Thursday the quirky troupe of blue-faced performers will move to the Monte Carlo Resort & Casino.

Currently, the Blue Man Group takes to the stage at the Venetian, which is owned by the Las Vegas Sands Corp. The group will perform there through September 2012.

At the Monte Carlo, the Blue Man Group will become the newest headliner on a roster that also includes Jabbawockeez, a hip-hop dance troupe that claimed the title of "America's Best Dance Crew" on an MTV show of the same name.

The group will perform in the 1,200-seat Monte Carlo Theater.

"We were attracted by the great theater, but we were equally attracted by the team at Monte Carlo and MGM Resorts International as well as their vision for creating unique and entertaining experiences for their customers," says Phil Stanton, co-founder of Blue Man Group in a statement.

"We look forward to adding our unique brand of music, fun and curiosity into the mix to help them achieve that vision," adds Chris Wink, another co-founder.

Founded in 1987, Blue Man group is known for an exaggerated theatrical show that stars a trio of men who appear to have blue skin and no voice, hair, or ears. The group has been performing in Las Vegas for 11 years, and also has productions in New York and Tokyo, among other cities.
