Blue’s Clues Live!

Blue is back! Blue and Steve return in their interactive musical adventure (based on the popular Nickelodeon® television series) in what is now an annual production presented by Lynbrook-based Plaza Theatrical Productions. Blue and Steve, who is played by Baldwin’s Jeremy Smith, lead the audience on a clue-based journey in search of the most spectacular place of all. This quest takes them through Storybook Forest, where Blue and Steve meet The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks, The Big Bad Wolf, and other characters from classic fairytales. They even travel to outer space as they continue their quest, discovering planets and other celestial wonders along the way. When they discover the final clue, Blue and Steve learn that home is the most spectacular place of all.
