The cast will perform Tuesday and Wednesday nights at the Embassy Theatre

Thursday, September 26, 2013 12:01 am
With a name like “Stomp,” you might think the show coming Tuesday and Wednesday to the Embassy Theatre will be just a bunch of racket.But it's not all about people in boots stomping around onstage and garbage can lids being banged.

Consider the swish of a broom or the unmistakable click of Zippo lighters being flipped open. That's part of “Stomp,” too.

The performers “make a rhythm out of anything we can get our hands on that makes a sound,” said co-founder/director Luke Cresswell in a news release.

Created by Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, “Stomp” began as a street performance in the United Kingdom. It currently has four productions, one in New York and one in England, and two touring groups, one in North America and one in Europe.

The show is a fusion of percussion and dance, with the cast creating music out of everything from supermarket carts to boots and hubcaps — everything but conventional percussion instruments.

“Stomp,” which has been around 20 years and has been seen by more than 24 million people, even has been in Fort Wayne several times as part of the Broadway at the Embassy series.

The show has changed over the years, however, according to the release, incorporating new material to keep it fresh.
