STOMP Coming to Boch Center Shubert Theatre Aprol 20 and 21

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20 AT 10:00AM

Boston, MA (October 16, 2017) – The Boch Center and 35 Concerts announced today that international percussion sensation STOMP will head to the Boch Center Shubert Theatre for three performances April 20-21, 2018. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, October 20, 2017 at 10:00AM.

Created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, STOMP continues its phenomenal run with four global productions: the ongoing sell-out production at New York's Orpheum Theatre, a permanent London company, and North American and European tours. Throughout its life, the show has continued to change by creating new material; next year it will incorporate two new pieces. It is safe to say you will never again look at supermarket carts  or plumbing fixtures the same way… or paint cans, or kitchen sinks or…

STOMP has received overwhelming success marked by rave reviews, numerous awards, and sell-out engagements, and is the winner of an Olivier Award for Best Choreography (London's Tony Award), a New York Obie Award, a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatre Experience, and a Special Citation from Best Plays. Over the past 20 years, STOMP has performed in more than 50 countries and in front of more than 24 million people.

The performers “make a rhythm out of anything we can get our hands on that makes a sound,” says co-founder/director Luke Cresswell. A unique combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy, STOMP has created its own inimitable, contemporary form of rhythmic expression: both household and industrial objects find new life as musical instruments in the hands of an idiosyncratic band of body percussionists. It is a journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and drum.

“STOMP is as crisp and exuberant as if it had opened yesterday,” says The New York Times.

“A phenomenal show! Bashing, crashing, smashing, swishing, banging and kicking – a joyous invention!” says the Chicago Tribune.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, October 20 at 10:00AM and are available at the Boch Center Box Office, bochcenter.org, or by calling (866) 348-9738. Groups of 10 or more may reserve tickets now by contacting Boch Center Group Sales at (617) 532-1116 or groups@bochcenter.org.
