STOMP, created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, was first performed in 1991 in Edinburgh, and tomorrow (Sunday 27th September 2015) celebrates eight years at the Ambassadors Theatre in London where it has broken all previous box office records.
One of Britain’s greatest exports, STOMP has toured the globe for 22 years, playing over 20,000 performances to more than 12 million people in 53 countries on six continents. There are currently four STOMP companies performing worldwide: one on tour in North America, another throughout Europe and the rest of the world, one in New York, and one in London.
- In its 13 years in London’s West End, STOMP has consumed over 10,000 boxes of matches, over 13,500 brooms, almost 9,000 bin lids, over 18,000 drumsticks, over 8,000 wooden poles, over 35,000 newspapers, over 6,500kg of sand, almost 260,000 litres of water and 676 gallons of floor paint.
- The cast of STOMP has performed ‘Cecilia’ with Paul Simon and Jimmy Fallon, and the production is a firm celebrity favourite, with audience members having included Jodi Foster, Oprah Winfrey, Bob Dylan, Sir Ben Kingsley, Phil Collins and Stephen Fry.
