"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. " Full Review

Chicago Theater Beat

"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!" Full Review

Devin Torkelsen

"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."

Edge Chicago

"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." Full Review

"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."

Time Out London

"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." Full Review

Chicago Critic

"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." Full Review
