BWW Review: STOMP Smashes Its Way to Orlando
by Kimberly Moy - Mar 25, 2016

Stomp is one of those shows I've heard about, seen the advertisements, seen the commercials, but have never experienced in person. If you're like me then it's time to see this show, if you haven't.

Not many shows can have that distinction of going on past the twenty year mark. It's also one of those shows whose concepts wormed its way into popular culture. Now that I've seen it, I can understand its longevity and appeal. (more...)
