blue men unpainted

It’s almost midnight and I’m in the office. I didn’t work hardly at all today because I have a friend in town and a writing workshop going on during the days. So I’m holed up here in the wee hours while they sleep.

A really cool thing happened tonight. We were walking through town, through Piazza della Riforma, and Blue Man Group was rehearsing for tomorrow night’s show. You can see the live Web cam on the Piazza here.

Now, some of you may not know Blue Man Group… but for those of you who do, who’ve seen them… it was a total run-though, except sans the blue. The lights, the music, they were testing it out… but also the guys were running through all their motions and movements and everything in slightly slow motion. The stage is HUGE. They’ve been building it in the Piazza for at least a week. We’re far away so the photo isn’t great. It was very cool — you’ll just have to take my word for it. It’s warm here, too, compared to further north where I’ve heard it’s been snowing for a couple of days. Wonders never cease here.

I saw them years ago in Vegas. It was the same show. They’re young guys. Cuter without the blue.

I’m hoping I can talk Lori into going back tomorrow night. It’s free!
