Stomp extends to January 2018 into its 15th year in London's West End.
The long-running hit show extends.
Long-running West End hit Stomp has today announced that it has extended its booking period at the Ambassadors Theatre in London's West End to 7 January 2018. Throughout this period the show will celebrate its 10th anniversary at the Ambassadors Theatre, as well as its 15th birthday in London.
Created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, Stomp was first performed in 1991 in Edinburgh. The show went on to transfer to Sadler’s Wells Theatre in January 1994 and won the Olivier Award for Best Choreography. It later transferred to New York and the first European company was created in 1997.
Its first extended run in London was at the Vaudeville Theatre where it opened on 25 September 2002 before transferring to the Ambassadors Theatre on 27 September 2007.
Described as one of Britain’s greatest exports, Stomp has toured the world for the past 25 years, playing to more than 12 million people in 53 countries across 6 continents. There are currently four productions of the show running around the world, including the New York production where the show has been running for over 22 years. It recently completed a 10-week season in Beijing and will play India for the first time in 2016.
"Stomp finds beauty and music in the mundane - from boots and bins to zippo lighters and plumber's plungers - everything including the kitchen sink becomes part of this production as a cast of 8 performers make instruments out of brooms and turn hand-clapping into conversation. With energy and toe-tapping exuberance, STOMP takes the clutter and junk of everyday life and transforms it into a theatrical event."
Stomp is presented in London by Yes/No Productions and Glynis Henderson Productions Limited.
Tickets for the new booking period to January 2018 are now on sale.
