After just under 29 years, the long-running Off-Broadway show Stomp is set to close at the Orpheum Theatre on January 8. At the time of closing, the show will have played 11,485 total performances.

Stomp is a music, dance, and comedy show dubbed "the rhythm of New York." Its performers make symphonies from ordinary objects like garbage cans, brooms, sandbags, newspapers, and more — that is, anything but traditional instruments.

Stomp, co-created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, originated in Europe, where it won the Best Choreography Olivier Award. It then opened off Broadway on February 27, 1994. The New York production won an Obie Award, the Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatre Experience, and the Legend of Off-Broadway Award. In 2021, it was one of the first New York shows from before the pandemic to reopen.

Besides its Off-Broadway production, Stomp currently has North American and European tours taking place; both will continue to run. In its lifetime, Stomp has traveled to more than 40 countries on six continents.

The current Stomp Off-Broadway cast includes Alan Asuncion, Micah Cowher, John Gavin, Desmond Howard, Jayme Overton, Tamii Sakurai, Emmanuel “Manny” Scott, and Reggie Talley.
