As Blue Man Group takes the stage at Starlight this weekend, it’s a homecoming for an artist. KMBC 9 caught up with him to get a behind-the-scenes look at the show and find out what he says are the best and hardest parts.

Before becoming a Blue Man, Steven Wendt had a lot to learn.

“I had never seen it when I auditioned, I really had no idea,” he said as he stood backstage at the Starlight Theater ahead of opening night.

From drums to lesser-known instruments like the galaxy maker and the drum bone made from PVC pipe, the Johnson County native has mastered them all after 10 years of touring.

Wendt, who went to Shawnee Mission North High School, is excited to bring music and laughter back to his hometown, with never-before-seen surprises in store.

“Blue Man Group is constantly revising, coming up with new content and this show is 80% new,” Wendt said, “so if you’ve seen Blue Man Group before, that’s totally different.”

He says his favorite part is interacting with the audience, but that also brings one of the biggest challenges.

“I guess not laughing would probably be the hardest part, because we end up in funny situations,” he said, “and as long as we can stick together, the audience can laugh for us.”

He can’t wait to earn those laughs at Starlight all weekend.
