STAGE TUBE: STOMP Performs 'Cecelia' with Jimmy Fallon & Paul Simon
Last night on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," Jimmy invited STOMP to perform with him and the legendary Paul Simon on his classic, "Cecilia." Following the performance Jimmy said that he'd had a dream with STOMP and Paul Simon, but that he was never in it.
STOMP, the international sensation, plays at New York's Orpheum Theatre (126 Second Avenue at 8th Street). Created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, STOMP can be seen in New York, London's West End, and on North American and European tours.
STOMP has been an overwhelming success marked by rave reviews, numerous awards, an Academy Award nomination, a Grammy nomination, four Emmy nominations and one Emmy Award, noteworthy TV appearances ranging from The Academy Awards to Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, and a series of award-winning international commercials. STOMP's international engagements have included Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, South Africa, Israel, Palestine, Brazil, Argentina, Italy, Germany, Poland, Bahrain, and The Acropolis in Athens, Greece. STOMP has also made its unique presence known on cuts on Quincy Jones' CD Q's Jook Joint and in a unique collaboration on the Latin Grammys with the award-winning band Calle 13. STOMP has become such an identifiable part of popular culture that it has been parodied on Saturday Night Live and The Simpsons, and has been an answer on Jeopardy!
Critics and audiences have raved: "STOMP is a sure-fire crowd pleaser with a rock-and-roll heart," says The New York Times. "STOMP finds beautiful noise in the strangest places," says USA Today. STOMP is the winner of an Olivier Award for Best Choreography (London's Tony Award); an Obie Award; a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatre Experience, and a Special Citation from Best Plays.
