The beat really does go on! The engaging and utterly original show, STOMP takes over the Shubert Theater April 8-10, for four performances of its infectious celebration of rhythm, with dance, music and the use of every day items as instruments keeping time. STOMP was born in 1991 in Brighton, England, conceived by choreographer/directors Luke Cressswell and Steve McNicholas , and began life as a street performance. After transferring to the London stage, where it won an Olivier Award, it opened on Broadway in 1994, winning an Obie and Drama Desk Award and then, blossoming in venues around the world. Since then, this unique performance that creates rhythms using brooms, lids, water bottles -- even bananas -- as beat makers, has not only inspired productions worldwide, (it's been seen in 36 countries) it's become an IMAX film, been partnered with specially-composed music by Quincy Jones, even joined forces for a STOMP TV special with the marvelous Muppets. Its infectious, life-enhancing energy has beguiled audiences of all ages, and just keeps on going like a perpetual motion machine. The New York Times said, STOMP is as crisp and exuberant as if it had opened yesterday. Tickets are $15-$60. For more information, visit the Shubert's website . Have you seen STOMP?
