Blue Man Group preps to invade our red state.

Rod Lott September 19th, 2012

You have no idea who actor Kirk Massey is. He prefers you didn’t.

The Georgia native is one-third of the Blue Man Group’s North America tour, which will stage five shows Friday through Sunday at Civic Center Music Hall, 201 N. Walker. The theatrical multimedia troupe is known worldwide for its energetic shows, absence of dialogue and, above all, bald heads covered in blue greasepaint.

“The anonymity is one of the things I like best about it,” said Massey, who’s been with Blue Man Group since 2005. “It’s one of the few things that’s all about the show and the art. No one’s coming to see the person behind the paint.”

That helps him get into character, he said, and while the touring show follows a structure — 40 percent of which is new material — each performance is a bit different. Audience response dictates the direction of the trio’s improvisation.

“How we get from point A to point B varies,” Massey said. “That’s the fun journey we get to take from the start of every show.”

Tickets are $20-$60. For more information, call 297-2264 or visit —Rod Lott
