    Blue Man Group has entertained millions of people over the years, but now they’re embarking on a new chapter as they join forces with another massive entertainment company.

    New York-based Blue Man Productions has been purchased by Cirque du Soleil, which is looking to expand its reach beyond the acrobatic shows that they’ve become legendary for.

    “We want to broaden our horizons, develop new forms of entertainment, reach out to new audiences and expand our own creative capabilities,” Cirque du Soleil CEO Daniel Lamarre said in a statement. “We are extremely excited to welcome the iconic Blue Man Group to our portfolio of shows.”

    The Blue Man Group maintains permanent shows in New York, Las Vegas, Boston, Chicago, Orlando and Berlin, according to their website.
