Blue Man Group will not be returning to the stage at Universal Orlando.

However, Blue Man Group will eventually restart its shows in other locations across the country, once it is safe to do so, the announcement said.  

“While this is the end of our run at Universal Orlando, we hope our fans will visit when we safely reopen in Las Vegas, New York, Chicago and Boston,” the group tweeted.
