Global phenomenon STOMP reaches milestone birthday in London’s West End
May 2015 marks the 13th anniversary of recordbreaking show STOMP’s arrival in the West End.
Created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, STOMP made its debut at the Vaudeville Theatre in 2002, later transferring to the Ambassadors Theatre in 2007, where it broke box office records earlier this year.
Separately, the show has toured the globe for 22 years, playing more than 20,000 performances to over 12 million people in 53 countries.
In addition to its success, STOMP performed live at the 1996 Academy Awards to an estimated audience of almost 1billion worldwide. The largest assembly of STOMP performers – 40 performers from 12 countries – was also brought together for a specially choreographed appearance at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics. The London cast includes Omari Carter, Nigel Clarke, Simone Clarke, Hugo Cortes, Paul Gunter, Melanie Joseph, James Lane and Laetitia Lawrence. STOMP is currently booking until December 20, 2015.
