NEW YORK (AP) -- It's been 20 years since the Blue Man Group became a performance art sensation.

But that's only the first act for founders Chris Wink, Matt Goldman and Phil Stanton.

The trio, along with their wives, has founded Blue School. They started the private preschool and elementary school to give their own kids a more creative education.

On Wednesday, the three original Blue Men will appear on stage for the first time in 11 years during a school fundraiser.

Ticket prices top out at $10,000. The opening act is Dave Matthews.

Blue School is moving to a permanent home near South Street Seaport in the fall.

Tuition is $28,500. Goldman says that's average for New York City private schools.
