Performing as a Blue Man is a coveted profession. After all, who doesn't want to drum on PVC pipes and catch marshmallows in their mouth for a living? An open casting call Monday at the Venetian's Blue Man Theater brought 157 people with high hopes. Only 20 got callbacks. The Sun follows one Las Vegas-born hopeful through every (non-restricted) step of his audition.
