This show is a real spectacle, but in the most simplistic way. You too will be clapping, tapping and snapping your finger to this percussion filled night of excellence. 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.
Info About Stomp:
‘One of the most successful off-Broadway productions, Stomp is an energetic mélange of acrobatic body movements, pantomime and rhythms created from everyday objects. A Drama Desk Award winner, Stomp has enthralled critics as well as fans in the U.S., ever since it debuted at Orpheum Theater in 1994. The eclectic theatrical show has embarked on several successful tours since, including a full-fledged tour of North America.’
‘Stomp Los Angeles History’
‘Percussionist Luke Cresswell and director Steve McNicholas created Stomp in 1991. The show had eight performers, which included acrobats, mime artists and percussionists who used everyday objects, such as dustbins, brooms and buckets to create rhythms. The show debuted at Bloomsbury Theatre in London and got rave reviews. It wasn’t until 1994 that the original cast and crew of Stomp made their way to the U.S., performing in New York City. Eventually, an American cast was finalized for the show the same year.’
‘Stomp Los Angeles Milestones’
‘Since making its U.S. debut at the Orpheum Theater in 1994, Stomp has delivered more than 5,000 sold-out performances in New York alone. The creators of the show have been roped in for several TV, film and theater projects, such as Pandemonium: The Lost and Found Orchestra. The show was an orchestral version of the concept behind Stomp and was showcased at Sydney Opera House in 2007.
An extended cast of Stomp was put together in 2007 for Stomp Out Loud, which was showcased in Las Vegas at a brand new theater, specially constructed for the show.
A short documentary, entitled Pulse: A Stomp Odyssey, was released in 2002, which got favorable reviews from critics and fans, alike.’
‘Stomp Los Angeles Cast’
‘Stomp’s Los Angeles production has an eclectic range of performers, including award-winning tap dancer Simeon Weedall, So You Think You Can Dance star Alexis Juliano and composer Marivaldo Santos, who has worked with such artists as Sting and Wyclef Jean.’
‘Stomp Los Angeles Live Experience’
‘Despite being around for more than two decades, Stomp continues to fill theaters at big as well as small venues. Stomp Los Angeles tickets are usually sold out really fast, which is why fans should grab them as soon as possible. It is a 90-minute, wordless show, which relies on percussive and acrobatic skills of performers to keep things interesting. Unlike almost all other theatrical shows, Stomp does not rely on narrative. Instead, it relies on novelty, whose highlight is the unassuming objects that are used to create sound textures and rhythms, alive. For instance, fans can expect to see something as unexpected as Zippo lighters and matchboxes as part of the live percussion ensemble.’
Current Los Angeles Cast:
Jordan Brooks, Joshua Cruz, Declan Hayden, Madeline Jafari, Zahna Johnson, Jasmine Joyner, Riley Korrell, Cary Lamb Jr., Max Meyer, Artis Olds, Sean Perham, and Cade Slattery.
