Question: What performance goes through 8 Lids, 1 Tall Bins, 5 Short Bins, 10 6ft 6in poles, 15 Pounds of Sand, 4 blocks of Athletes chalk, 12 pairs of Drumsticks, 200 liters of Water, 8 Bananas, and 12 boxes of Matches in one week? Answer: STOMP.
I just can't believe the acts that the Lowell Auditorium books these days - the Broadway phenom STOMP has been booked for Nov. 27-28! 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, Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas. We took our boys [ages 5 & 7] to see STOMP this summer in New York City -- and even though the creators suggest the audience be over 8 years of age, our boys loved it and are still snapping and banging their way through the day. The shows are at 8 p.m. and tickets range from $28.50 -$54.50 [WAY less than seeing them in N.Y.!] The show has its obvious loud moments, being percussion based, so if noise bothers you, think about seeing the Doodlebops three days prior!
