Stomp made it's Off-Broadway debut when it opened at the Orpheum Theatre. That's over twenty-one years ago for those of you keeping count. Not too bad for a show about a bunch of actor's banging on trash cans for ninety minutes. I kid of course since I've seen the show and trust me when I say it is so much more than that. Now I actually saw the show shortly after it opened and to be honest going in I had no idea what to expect.
Boy was I surprised. Like it's neighbor up the street Blue Man Group, Stomp is one of the most creative and captivating shows you will see either On or Off-Broadway. It is a must see and a perfect show for the whole family. How many shows out there can you say that about? Now like I said I've seen the show but for those of you who haven't and would like a little more information about the show before you purchase tickets here is a little synopsis about Stomp for you to check out. Enjoy!
Matchboxes, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters and more fill the stage with energizing beats at STOMP, the inventive and invigorating stage show that's dance, music and theatrical performance blended together in one electrifying rhythm. Stomp has been an answer on Jeopardy!, nominated for an Academy Award, won two Emmy Awards for the HBO special Stomp Out Loud, and jammed with everyone from Quincy Jones to Big Bird.
Big Bird? I don't recall him being there when I saw it. Oh well. Maybe next time. So are you convinced yet? I know I sure would be if I hadn't already seen it. By the way for those of you who want to see it I have some great news. It is now possible to get tickets to see Stomp at rates that are lower than ever. Plus at only two hundred and ninety nine seats there is literally not a bad seat in the house. Get your Stomp tickets today and see the show that the New York Times called, "A sure fire crowd pleaser!" Until next time theatre fans.
