The Blue Man Group will be performing at the Fargodome on Tuesday, April 3. If you aren’t familiar with this wildly popular group, they are well-known for their combination of comedy, music, technology and starkly blue faces. The Blue Man Group show has been described as intensely exciting, outrageous, and one that leaves the audience in a blissful, euphoric state. And, who doesn’t love euphoria?! With no spoken language, Blue Man Group is perfect for people of all languages, and cultures.

I can’t even begin to tell you how often I’ve heard the phrase: “What do you do for fun in North Dakota?” Apparently, people think that because we don’t have a huge population base, we simply must count mosquitos for entertainment. Thankfully, that is not the case, as the state has a thriving entertainment segment. To highlight some of the cool arts and entertainment the state has to offer, the North Dakota Department of Commerce has put together a series of Arts & Music in North Dakota podcasts. It’s amazing how many things there really are to do in the state when you simply stop and start to look at the opportunities available!
