STOMP, a unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy, was created in Brighton, U.K., in the summer of 1991. It was the result of a 10 year collaboration between its creators, Steve McNicholas and Luke Creswell.
In 2006, STOMP's New York production passed its 5000th performance mark. In the same year, Luke and Steve directed a public service announcement for television called STOMP OUT LITTER, which featured the cast "sweeping up" at iconic locations in the five boroughs. They also began filming an Imax 3D movie about South Africa's Sardine Run, to be released in early 2008.
In addition, they were commissioned to create and produce the Lost and Found Orchestra, which takes the ideas behind Stomp to a symphonic level, in celebration of 40 years of the Brighton Festival. The LFO subsequently performed at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Sydney Festival early in 2007 and will soon be seen at the Royal Festival Hall in London.
In 2007, STOMP OUT LOUD opened in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino with an expanded cast and performed inside a new $28 million theater specifically created for the production.
