Blue Man Group is a pretty tight musical group, an adroit team of silent comedians and a more-than-capable gang of technologically enhanced magicians. Combine all of that with the group's love of pop art and surprises, and you have one of the more unpredictable theatrical experiences you'll ever see. The blue men's ability to switch from making a spontaneous piece of art via projectile paint vomiting to catching marshmallows in their mouths to running a small camera down a throat, all while projecting that footage on a massive overhead video screen, keeps you on your seat. It's a peculiar skill set, and it produces a singularly memorable night. The Blue Man Group performs at 8 p.m. Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, and 2 and 7:30 p.m. Sunday (April 25 through 27) at Peabody Opera House (1400 Market Street; 314-499-7600 or www.peabodyoperahouse.org). Tickets are $27 to $92.
Fri., April 25, 8 p.m.; Sat., April 26, 2 & 8 p.m.; Sun., April 27, 2 & 7:30 p.m., 2014
