A Foot Tapping, Hand Clapping, Stomping Great Show.. We Review Stomp At Birmingham Hippodrome.
For almost three decades Stomp has been wowing audiences all over the world with it’s unique blend of rhythm, movement, comedy and dance. A theatrical show like no other, it on all week at Birmingham Hippodrome.
Having spent many years playing percussion in my younger years I get very excited when shows are very rhythmic, writes Lilith Hunt-Sheppard, but nothing prepared me for the sheer, rhythmic intensity of stomp.
Set in an industrial looking stage, each pot or pan, plastic bin or street sign is used in some part of the show.As the cast work their way through a variety of unimaginable every day things as instruments (yes, that includes the kitchen sink) you are taken in a rhythmic journey with them.
Not only are you amazed with the way each performer plays, the whole show is incredibly hilarious. Not a word is muttered by the cast but no words needed as the audience roared with laughter at their slapstick antics.
Stomp is a brilliant show for all ages. Highly engaging the show had everyone on their feet. The amount of discipline by each performer translates to flawless performances. It is by far one of the most energetic and enthralling shows we have had the pleasure of going to see.
