STOMP, the international phenomenon, celebrated 20 years at New York’s Orpheum Theatre in 2014.
Created and directed by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, STOMP is the winner of
London’s Olivier Award, New York’s Obie Award, an Outer Critics Circle Award for Unique
Theatrical Experience, and a Legend of Off-Broadway Award. Cresswell and McNicholas
received an Oscar nomination for the short film Brooms and an Emmy for the HBO Special
Stomp Out Loud. The New York Times calls STOMP “Exuberant!” Brilliant!” and “A sure-fire crowd pleaser!”
STOMP began as street performance and went on to become a world-famous show and an
unmistakable part of popular culture with a sound, look and attitude all its own. Part of the fabric of New York’s theatre landscape, STOMP has been called “a sure-fire crowd pleaser with a rock-and-roll heart” by the New York Times, and been seen by 25+ million people in 40+ countries. STOMP has performed everywhere from The Acropolis to The Academy Awards.
It has been parodied on The Simpsons, been an answer on “Jeopardy!,” jammed with Mister Rogers and The Muppets, and collaborated with stars ranging from The Rolling Stones’ Ron Wood to Paul Simon.
The show continues to wow audiences worldwide with its unique combination of theatre,
dance, comedy and percussion. In addition to the New York show, STOMP is running in
London’s West End, and on North American and European tours.
