STOMP review

STOMP is back, and it’s better than ever!

Following their acclaimed performance at the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, STOMP returns to Australia with new routines, new choreography and new music.

Wordless, witty and fun, STOMP has become a global phenomenon over the last 22 years. Its universal language of rhythm, theatre, comedy and dance has resonated with audiences throughout the world, setting feet stamping, fingers drumming and adrenalin rushing for over 15 million people in 48 countries across 5 continents.

Eight performers use everything from supermarket trolleys to Zippo lighters, plastic bags to bin lids, and even the kitchen sink to hammer out an explosively feel-good rhythm.

Loved by audiences of all ages, this multi-award winning show is now in its 11th year in London’s West End, and its 20th year on Broadway. Come and see what all the noise is about!

Matchboxes, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters and more fill the stage with energizing beats at STOMP, the inventive and invigorating stage show that's dance, music and theatrical performance blended together in one electrifying rhythm.

Being so heavily pregnant with only weeks - maybe even days to go, I didn’t know whether or not I should go to STOMP and with Dan starting his new job and being tired I wasn't sure if it was the right thing to be attending on a 'school night' but I am glad we ended up going as we really enjoyed the show. 
Dan & I do have to look at all the possible chances to have alone time or date nights now as soon their won't be time and we probably won't have the energy for date nights haha.  

The show started with a guy and a broom, then the rest of the cast made it out on the stage with their brooms and made a really cool beat from them. 
I know after seeing this, cleaning the house and sweeping just will not be the same anymore, but more of a music making session. 

The music, well beats were really entertaining and got those feet tapping on the ground and I even felt little miss cherub in their join in a few times giving mummies tummy a wiggle.

I wouldn't really recommend this show for heavily pregnant women though for one reason, and that is due to the fact there isn't an interval. I'm running to the bathroom every 15-20 minutes at this stage of my pregnancy with the little cherub sitting low now and I really just needed to get off my bottom and walk around. 
If it wasn't for me being so heavily pregnant I would have been more then happy to sit there for hours more watching STOMP tapping and beating away.

STOMP was held at the Comedy Theatre which is right in the heart of the CBD where there is heaps of parking around at good not stealing your life savings from the pocket prices - I think the most you would pay is about $10-$15 flat rate when you enter the car parks after hours, which is good for secure parking.

There are only 8 shows in Melbourne, so if you have not got your tickets I would suggest to get a wriggle on to go and see it. Details can be found here:
