A rotating cast of eight spirited performers builds rhythms within the framework of rudimentary narratives during Stomp, an Off Broadway, percussion-heavy experience. Ranked as one of Entertainment Weekly’s 50 Best Plays and Musicals from 1983 to 2008, Stomp has impressed beat-embracing crowds since 1994. The performers employ household instruments such as hammers, garbage-can lids, and sitars with strings of discarded dental floss, enchanting audiences with a unique fusion of musical theater, comedy, and performance art. Like a marriage ceremony between two mimes, the 90-minute performance occurs without dialogue or an intermission.
