Even before kids we never really had our act together for New Year’s Eve. My husband is an early bird and doesn’t do the “stay up until midnight” thing that well. Since kids, neither do I. We have always kind of floated around on NYE with no specific plans and it is a bit of a let down.
What I realised recently is that our best New Year’s Eves have been when we have plans like the year we went to see Boston Ballet’s NYE Nutcracker. The year we stayed at The Colonnade and participated in First Night was also a blast. We have had a few parties at home too but we really love having plans out. They are not even really late nights but they are in our city and there is a festive contagious buzz around us.
This year there is no NYE Nutcracker, but Blue Man Group has a NYE show that families can take in midday or midnight (in Portugal time – 8pm out time).
“Each year we want to add something festive to the overall show experience. New this year, we’re spicing up our New Year’s Eve shows to make it a way for the entire family from kids to grandparents to celebrate the New Year, Blue Man style.”
-Jonathan Screnci, Blue Man Group Boston Resident General Manager
For the New Year’s Eve celebration there are four shows for the whole family on December 31st (11 am, 2 pm, 5 pm, 8 pm). The NYE show will feature party hats, noisemakers, and a “countdown” including a special musical performance by the Blue Men band to ring in 2019.Charles Playhouse will be serving seasonal libations during the holiday shows.
Blue Man Group and I have partnered up to five away a set of four tickets to any if the NYE shows in Boston to one lucky winner this year. You can enter to win here.
If you already have a NYE tradition, don’t worry because Blue Man Group has holiday shows going on from now through New Year’s Eve. Throughout December there are added matinees as well as merry photo props and a jolly backdrop that
will be on display in the Charles Playhouse Lounge for guests to stage the ultimate seasonal selfies with the Blue Men after the show.
