See the Stomp musical

Your author cashed in a recent raffle win to see Stomp at the Ambassador's Theatre last night, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Already in its 8th season in London, the Stomp Musical grew out of Brighton's STOMP, a combination of percussion, movement and visual comedy, which was created in Brighton in the summer of 1991.

Following a ten year collaboration between creators Steve McNicholas and Luke Cresswell, they produced, financed and directed the original STOMP themselves, beginning at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre and at the Assembly Rooms in Edinburgh, as part of the Edinburgh Fringe. The show has since won many awards, and combines percussion, dance and some visual comedy using everything from cigarette lighters, to newspapers, dustbins and barrels in a great show.

Readers of your author's age group will probably remember it from many episodes of Blue Peter, but don't let that put you off, as it's very good. Your author understands from an insider that you're best to avoid the matinees, however, as hangovers can sometimes affect performance. Considering how hard the cast work it is completely understandable.
