Clever, Delightful, Entertaining, Original, Must see

See it if You're looking for a fun evening! Great music made in very unusual ways.

Don't see it if You're looking for a show with a story or you don't like to ROCK!

Absorbing, Ambitious, Disappointing, Funny, Edgy

See it if you like shows like blue man group. Stomp makes the best out of percussion. It has some very funny interaction with the audience.

Don't see it if it is blue man group lite. It gets boring at some points. all the clanging gets old after a while.

"So does 'Stomp' still pack a punch? Yes – to a degree. There's something undeniably impressive about watching brooms, oil cans and vacuum-cleaner tubes transformed into musical instruments before your eyes. The show has managed to retain some of its original irreverence and it remains bigger and better than the many copycat shows that have sprung up in its wake."

"The good news is: it's still an original. A constantly inventive spectacle of sound-making, it provides an aural assault even as it offers the visually amusing - and surprising - sight of how these sounds are made. "

"While there’s no dialog as such (although there is some magnificent acting) and no overarching plot is to be discerned, there are running gags and memorable as well as entertaining sketches. Even without dialog, members of the 'Stomp' ensemble credibly interact and communicate with each other...While non-traditional, 'Stomp' is a powerful and mesmerizing show. Who knew that everything including the kitchen sink could be so entertaining?"

"It’s the audio AND the visual. It’s hearing AND seeing the stomp. In one number, the ensemble lines up with Zippo lighters for the click AND the flame. Fascinating! The fast paced sequence of innovation makes STOMP perfect for kids and adults. It is the most fun you’ll ever have with a broom!"

"This show is an absolute must for music-lovers worldwide. Truly an unforgettable experience that any theatre lover would enjoy. The fun lasted for about a solid hour and a half and although that would be the only thing I’d change about the show, STOMP! can count on me attending each and everytime they come to the Second City."

"There is no hierarchy in this production. There's no stratum of entitlement. Instead "Stomp" is a celebration of variety, universality and the simple joy of being really, really noisy in a world that often swallows our individual presence whole. This incarnation absolutely defies cynicism, offering a sonic and visual delight for audiences of all ages. The cast is uniformly winning."

"It leaves space for everyone to have their own personal reaction, to pick a favorite movement or performer. The beauty lies not only in the collected sounds and shapes of these diverse performers but in the unified response of the assorted audience at the close of the show; all of us on our feet, offering up a storm of applause, sharing collective appreciation."

"Since its inception in 1991, Stomp has captivated audiences similar to Blue Man Group. Millions love this show, I find it intoxicating...A unique experience that is a sure winner, if you’ve never seen Stomp—do so, you’ll have a bang-up time."
