About STOMP

After more than 25 years, Stomp is still going strong and syncopated at the Orpheum Theatre in New York. Get Stomp tickets on TodayTix now.

If you're looking for a truly unique, only-in-New-York experience for the whole family, Stomp is it. The Obie and Drama Desk Award-winning show is a city institution, having attracted countless audiences to the Orpheum Theatre since 1994. It's a music-and-dance show with a uniquely casual, streetwise vibe, unlike a ballet or opera. The instrumentalists play music on everyday objects while doing explosive, acrobatic choreography that will delight the eyes and ears of all ages. Think symphony meets sidewalk jam session.

The garbage cans on the sidewalk, the paper at the newsstand, or the broom in your home closet might not scream "music" to you, but you'll look at them in a whole new light after seeing Stomp. The show truly is the "rhythm of New York," staying true to the everyday bustle and noise of the city, but also turning it into truly gorgeous melodies.

Whether you're a New York newbie or a lifelong city-dweller, you've never heard its sounds like this. Get tickets to Stomp off Broadway today.

See it if a classic, at this point . . .

Entertaining, Original, Quirky, Refreshing, Riveting

See it if you love making music and originality.

Don’t see it if you're expecting a typical show with dialogue and a narrative.

Clever, Dated, Entertaining, Fun

See it if you think you might like the sound of random objects crashing together. Stomp is clever and a lot of fun.

Don’t see it if you're concerned that a whole evening of percussion might drive you batty. It does get a bit tedious at times.

Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Original, Great dancing

See it if Stomp has been running for decades. I only saw it recently. I loved it, fresh, dynamic, original for its time.

Don’t see it if It is not a traditional "show" with dance and music. It is a large group of very talented performers making art with found objects.

More information about STOMP

Stomp celebrates the essence of street theatre. It’s a frantic, high-energy entertainment show, combining music making with objects that everyone has, to show that anyone can create a rhythm. Stomp music is played entirely on nontraditional tools: buckets, brooms, sticks, pans. You name it, it can be a musical instrument. Stomp is a physical show, too, as performers use their body to convey the power of the music and sounds they’re creating. This blend of dance, music, pantomime, acrobatics, and DIY spirit earned the show a Drama Desk Award and an Obie Award for Most Unique Theatre Experience.

Since Stomp has become such a quintessential NYC show, you might be surprised to know it has its roots across the pond! Brits Steve McNicholas and Luke Cresswell were members of both a street band and a theatre troupe and decided to combine their talents into one show. They created the Stomp percussion group in 1991, and the original performances in London and Edinburgh gave way to an international tour that culminated in an Olivier Award-winning run in London's West End. The original London company also starred in Stomp's very first New York performances, but the show has since featured American actors.

What To Watch For

  • Performance artists in Stomp use a variety of miscellaneous objects to create their music. To name a few: between its opening and 2021, the New York show has used 5,408 hammer handles, 54,080 newspapers, 13,520 garbage can lids, and 27,040 drumsticks.
  • Stomp has been featured in lots of pop culture beyond theatre. Stomp performers appeared on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Sesame Street, Mad About You, and at the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony. In a 2012 episode of the animated sitcom American Dad!, the character Stan invests in a fictional Stomp Broadway production.
  • The success of Stomp around the world inspired a 2002 documentary film, Pulse: A Stomp Odyssey.
  • Like Stomp in New York, Stomp in London had a long run: After its initial month long run in 1993 in the West End, it returned in 2002 and closed in 2018. That 15-plus-year run has nothing on the New York run, though!
