Stomp at San Diego Civic Theatre for Fathers Day

Got to say I am jazzed, my kids got tickets for us to go for this incredible dance troops performance Fathers Day weekend. Anybody else seen this traveling show that started on Broadway?

Stomp
By Joan Eshkenazi

Although Stomp opened at the Orpheum Theatre in New York in February 1994, the spontaneity and excitement generated in this small, intimate theatre almost six years later makes one feel that the show was just born. In a nonstop one hour and forty-five minute performance, the audience is treated to a symphony of rhythmic percussion and movement using anything but standard instruments and choreography. Many shows have subsequently been influenced by the work created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, but I doubt whether they retain the freshness and creativity of Stomp.

Sixteen performers are listed in the program, with Fiona Wilkes being the only cast member from the original production. Eight equally talented "stompers" alternate each night in displaying their talents. Whether it is the strong movements of Keith "Wild Child" Middleton or the more comedic moments with Davi Vieira, we are captivated with the action on stage. The group interacts miraculously with each other never missing the beat.

Who needs a piano in the house when brooms will do? What about those trash cans or oil drums? Gave up smoking? Try playing those lighters for a lullaby! Any old rubber tubes around the house? Marimbas are too cumbersome in Manhattan apartments anyway. Everything, including the kitchen sink, can be used by this orchestra -- with or without the water.

And can these performers move! Many of the cast members have strong dance training. Stephanie Marshall studied with the Dance Theatre of Harlem. Mindy Haywood was a principal dancer with Jubilation! Dance Co. and the Clive Thompson Dance Co. Raquel Horsford holds a BA in Dance from Reuters University. Although Henry W. Snead Jr. is a premed. student at Stanford, he hasn't let that stump his style as he stomps. The performance list includes the composers Michael Paris and Jason Mills. Taro Alexander, Michael Bove, Maria Emilia Breyer, Kimmarie Lynch, Raymond Poitier, Marivaldo Dos Santos, John Sawicki, complete current lineup. ...

I've seen it twice and both times it was pretty cool. The first time, we were in the front row and that was awesome.
