The Blue Man Group has paved the way for many nonconventional productions such as Stomp, Tap Dogs, and De La Guarda. Since they opened in New York City in 1991, audiences from all over the world have seen their show. Smart silliness, neon-colored paint, cereal, and other wildly inventive props add to their visual appeal.

Jeff Award nominee and HIV+ director-producer Christopher Pazdernik is pleased to announce the 4th annual Chris's Birthday Belt Fest, a benefit concert for Howard Brown Health. Uptown Underground is a 21-years-old-and-older venue and advance reservations are strongly recommended.
Pazdernik's journey with Howard Brown Health began in 2009, when he was diagnosed HIV+. He has been receiving his treatments at Chicago's health and wellness center ever since and has even become the Community Advisory board chairperson. In 2015, Pazdernik was looking for a way to give back to Howard Brown Health and raise much needed funds for the organization. As a popular and respected member of Chicago's theater community, Pazdernik asked his friends — who happen to be many of Chicago's leading talents — to donate their time and celebrate his birthday singing high-energy songs from musicals with 100% of the ticket proceeds going directly to Howard Brown Health, and Chris's Birthday Belt Fest was born.
