Although the characters from Blue Man Group appeared in a household Intel commercial and the show is acclaimed as a "must-see" in Las Vegas, it is new to the Chinese, which may affect ticket sales, according to Yang Xiaoluan, a theater critic from Guangzhou.

"I hope that the box office for the show's tour in the Chinese mainland will go up with good reviews spread by word of mouth," he says.

"The show is able to give the audience a wow moment with 'I never imagined it could be done in this way' and draw them in, which is the key to a successful creative theater show."
