Review:

Stomp is a rhythmic, musical extravaganza that has stunned audiences across the globe. If you weren't lucky enough to catch them in your hometown (or you did and you crave more), now there's Stomp Out Loud, a special HBO performance that will bring the unusual musical feats right into your living room. You might just find yourself grabbing a broom or even your remote control to keep time. "It's comedy, it's theater, it's very physical, it's energetic, it's occasionally quite terrifying," says one performer. Taking their show from the theater to the streets, this astonishing troupe can make music out of just about anything and just about anywhere. The opening sequence shows them dangling by harnesses across the back of a Manhattan billboard drumming on hubcaps, pipes, street signs, and plastic garbage pails, all the while swaying and keeping in perfect time. You know how you like to groove along to the radio while driving? Stomp doesn't need a radio--they use their hands to make their own music while cruising the streets of New York. Using just basketballs in a steamy alleyway, the troop creates an incredibly intricate dance and sound with the street, brick walls, and Dumpsters. Included in the program are the push broom, garbage can, and pole dances, just a few of their best-known sequences. Stomp Out Loud showcases the performers in the theater, out about town, and in short humorous vignettes (love the recurring card game!). All in all, they amaze. This well-produced video also includes a trailer and a special behind-the-scenes look at the making of Stomp Out Loud. --Dana Van Nest

From the Back Cover:

Using ordinary objects to make extraordinary sounds, Stomp is a unique combination of percussion, movement, and visual comedy. After breaking box office records around the world and four years of sell-out performances off-Broadway, the show's creators have finally brought the energy and excitement of this rhythmic spectacular to home video, filmed live in New York City.

Featuring newly choreographed performances from the stage show along with all-new stage and street work, Stomp Out Loud makes spectacular rhythms out of the everyday. Whether dangling precariously from a massive billboard overlooking Manhattan, or putting the slam into slam dunk on the streets of the Big Apple, it is an explosive mix of music and dance, created by drumming, shaking, rattling, and rolling anything that makes a sound, from the obvious to the very unexpected. So get ready to... Stomp Out Loud

Includes special bonus behind-the-scenes interviews with the stars of Stomp Out Loud.
