BroadwayWorld.com: STOMP Comes to Manila, 10/18-23

by Oliver Oliveros, BroadwayWorld.com

Manila, Philippines, August 23, 2011 -- The non-traditional Off Broadway show Stomp, which has been packing in audiences at the Orpheum Theatre in East Village, New York since 1994, will have a limited run at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Main Theatre from October 18 to 23.

Stomp, created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, showcases actors who use ordinary objects as musical instruments (brooms, dust bins, and boxes of matches, among others) while they show off their dance moves and their flair for comedy.

Local audiences may be more familiar with Stomp's dolby digital cinema ads shown in Metro Manila cineplexes.

"What drives Stomp is its complex combination of polyrhythms building one on top of the other in waves of tension and release, creating a kind of mesmerizing, hypnotic effect on the audience. That they're doing this with common household objects and industrial junk, is what makes it so appealing... Co-directors and co-creators Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas have crafted a well-paced show that's amusing and toe-tapping at the same time," said Chris Gibson of BroadwayWorld.com.

Stomp has been seen by more than 15 million theatergoers in 48 countries across 5 continents since its world premiere in the United Kingdom in 1991.

Stomp Manila tickets are sold at P750, P1000, P1500, P2000, P2500, P3000, P3500, P4000, P4500, P5000, P5500 and P7000. Senior citizens enjoy a 20% discount.

Tickets are available at TicketWorld outlets at selected National Bookstore branches, Robinsons Department Store (Galleria, Malate, Metro East, Festival Mall & Starmill Pampanga) and Ayala Center (Greenbelt 1, Glorietta 4 and Trinoma Mall cinema booths); and at the TicketWorld office at 6793 Ayala Avenue, Suite 701 V.
