Blue. Blue. Blue. Man oh man oh man. Grab the Group as it hustles, bustles, rambles, scrambles by. You’ve heard of it. Them. Nah, it  (= collective noun.) Not people, exactly. They don’t look like you. They don’t talk like you. Actually they don’t talk at all. C’mon, you know this. Comedy. Pantomime. Tribal rhythms. Music too. However, co-founder Phillip Stanton did speak, saying this phenomenon encourages people to “reconnect with their own sense of wonder and discovery.” He, plus two-thirds of the initial trio, Chris Wink and Matt Goldman, bounced into their concept in 1987 and kicked it into high gear off-Broadway four years later. Their thing is still up and running, 23 years later. Internationally too. Sure.No words. /.  Elements:Plumbing, information pollution, following bliss, tiny objects, massive ones, eternal Twinkies, modern objects alien to innocent creatures such as they. They splatter. Front row ponchos provided.
