Going to see blue man group in Tokyo was an excellent idea. It was funny, it was colourful and best of all they don't speak so language wasn't an issue like it would've been if we'd decided to go see Wicked!
or something else. We got the tickets back in May so we were smack bang front and centre in the "raincoat" section, the part where they provide you with lots of plastic sheeting so you don't get any paint on your clothes. After the show there were massive crowds gathered around one of the Blue men in the lobby trying to get photos of him, it was a slightly mad scene, like the beginnings of a riot so Yumiko, Sanae and I decided to bypass the photo opportunity and just go home instead. We were fiddling around with our umbrellas when Yumiko ran smack bang into someones back
"Sumimasen!" she apologized breathlessly before gasping and staring at the man in shock. She'd run into a blue man himself, still decked out in paint and sneaking around outside, apparently avoiding the commotion, but I think more realistically just trying to cause a commotion of his own. the blue man stared down at Yumiko unnervingly an then gently raised her hand to his lips. He kissed her quickly and then turned abruptly away leaving her starstruck and in awe with a blue pair of lips outlined on the back of her hand.
