Hide the pots and pans and cooking utensils, because when the kids get wind of what Stomp is all about, there’s a good chance they’ll try to produce their own rendition of the Broadway hit at home. Then again, finding amusement in common household items could save you bundles on toys. And now you can consider the cost of tickets to see the show at the Warner Theatre later this month an investment in future savings.
Stomp, the unique musical production of choreographed percussion using the body and ordinary objects, is on an American tour and will be here in Washington from January 25 – 30. Tickets range from $37 – $57, depending on when you go and where you sit. Purchase through Ticketmaster online or by calling 800.551.7328.
If you can’t make it to the show or find the ticket prices a bit steep, you can catch a free sneak preview performance at the Social Safeway in Georgetown on January 13, an event in partnership with the Capital Food Bank’s Stomp Out Hunger Campaign. The performance starts at 6:30pm, but you can get there early to enjoy some food samples or start your shopping — it sounds like the show will happen as shoppers walk the aisles. True to their art, performers will be using items from the shelves as instruments in their grocery store production.
1/10 UPDATE: Two more sneak preview mini-performances of Stomp will take place on January 13. The first will take place in Union Station’s Main Hall at 8:30am, and a lunchtime show will happen in the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library Great Hall (901 G Street NW) at 12:30pm.
