1997 seems like ages ago, doesn't it? It's the year Titanic sailed into theatres, Ellen DeGeneres came out publicly and the Hale-Bopp comet sped by Earth's outer orbit. Also, this.

1997 was also the year Blue Man Group opened at Chicago's Briar Street Theatre as an off-Loop curiosity (and the year I first saw the show). Quickly, the show gained a tourist following and never looked back -- 16 years later the show is still playing to packed houses, eager to see what these odd, monochromatic men are up to.
