Dance Hit Stomp Moves into Ambassadors, 27 SepDate: 5 September 2007
After it finishes its five-year run this month at the Vaudeville Theatre - where it makes way for the stage adaptation of the cult 1994 film Swimming with Sharks, starring Christian Slater (See News, 8 Aug 2007) – Stomp will continue its West End season at the Ambassadors Theatre.
The dance extravaganza finishes at the Vaudeville, where it opened on 25 September 2002, on Sunday 23 September 2007 and reopens four days later, on Thursday 27 September, at the Ambassadors, where it’s initially booking until 22 March 2008.
The award-winning show, which originated in Brighton in 1991 and has previously played at the Roundhouse and Sadler’s Wells in London, has toured all over the world and has now been seen by more than ten million people.
Stomp transforms the junk and clutter of urban life into a source of rhythm and dance. In 100 minutes, a cast of eight performers use boots, dustbin lids, garbage, zippo lighters, plumbers' plungers and everything including the kitchen sink to hammer out a symphony.
Stomp is presented in the West End by Glynis Henderson Productions and Yes/No Productions. Currently at the Ambassadors, the Menier Chocolate Factory revival of spoof sci-fi musical, which transferred from the Duke of York’s this past June, closes on 8 September prior to a UK tour planned for next year (See News, 15 Aug 2007).
