Blue Man Group: Exhibit 13

I had the opportunity to see Blue Man Group on their Complex Rock Tour a ways back, and must say it was a most enjoyable show. Which is to say, it rocked.
Having now purchased the concert DVD, I’ve been enjoying it this evening, and it has the same wild goofy energy as the live show did.
With one exception. The group’s presentation of Exhibit 13.
It is nearly three years since that day, and I have to say I am surprised to see how little art has come from it. Not even bad art.
Exhibit 13, however. It troubled me at first. But having lived with it for some time, it seems right. It brought tears to my eyes, again, as I watched it this evening, in a quiet room.
It is a reminder, and sometimes, we need that.
