Movie Reviews

Finally (and unbelievably) on DVD! The full show!

"It is rare for stage shows to get a video release. You can count the DVD releases of still-active Broadway shows on one hand and have a few fingers left over. STOMP, thank goodness, is tossing that rule into one of their oft-used and abused trash bins.

This DVD features a full performance of the wonderfully entertaining stage show, filmed in the UK on the same stage where many of the show's segments were created.

Even after a decade and a half, STOMP still defies easy description. Part concert, part theatre.... Impossible to pigeonhole. But it is 100% entertaining and fun. In STOMP, the world is your drum kit.

I've attended ten performances of this show since 1995 and I never grow tired of it. This DVD is a perfect souvenir of the performance.

There are quite a few bonus features on the disc, including a peek at some new bits being developed for future versions of the show. You also get performer bios, interviews with STOMP creators and directors, an alternate take of one show segment, and a few other bells and whistles.

A few years back saw the release of "STOMP Out Loud" on home video. It featured bits from the stage show and new material created especially for the pay-cable program, but it wasn't the complete show. Not even close. I liked "STOMP Out Loud", but I was a little disappointed that I wasn't getting the full stage show.

But now it's here!!

I cannot recommend this DVD enough. Fun, fun show. Even my fuddy-duddy friends who don't like theatre love this show.

Great disc, good crisp picture and sound.

I've only had it 24 hours and I've already watched it twice.

My personal favorite segment is "Hands and Feet", perhaps the most rhythmically complex and interesting part of the show. It is carefully structured and choreographed but also allows room for quite a bit of improvisation, like a jazz routine.

In a perfect world, someone would figure out how to mesh the magic of STOMP with the zany and creative juggling of The Flying Karamazov Brothers......

"This video is MUST own it. After watching the video we decided to have a "stomp party" and invited friends over and had some of our favorite beverages and snacks and had a wonderful time watching this video together. I highly recommend it."

"After having Stomp Out Loud recommended by a friend, I had to see this one, which I ended up liking as much, if not more than the other. Once I saw it, I had to own it. It makes me smile every time I watch it, has me getting out anything I can bang on, makes me laugh and shows me that the one common language of humanity is the rhythm of life in everything - breathing, walking, drumming or nature. Wonderful and highly recommended DVD. These people are so incredibly talented. It's a contagious movie. Be prepared with anything you can make sound with - but not dishes! You will get carried away."
Stompin' Great Show

"The great quality of Blu-ray adds to the impact of this live recording of a unique stage show. Seeing the sweat and dust of this performance is just like being at a live show. Clean crisp audio picks up the quiet sound of a broom sweeping the flooor to the heavy percussion of pounding the crap out of all sorts of objects."
