Stomp was similar to Blue Man Group, without the color and artistic vibe. The show lasted about 1 hour and 45 minutes, and consisted of a number of "musical" acts where the performers banged on things. They hit brooms together, banged on pots, pipes, tins, plastic drums, and anything else they could hit that made noise.

The performers were very coordinated, but you can find a similar amount of talent in almost any NYC subway station. There were some parts of the show that were too loud - notably when the performers were all banging on metal garbage cans. I noticed quite a few people plugging their ears.

My favorite act was when the performers were banging pipes on the ground. The pipes were different sizes, and thus produced notes of a different pitch. It was more musical than the other acts, which were just repetitive rhythms.

The show was kind of neat, but it's the sort of thing best enjoyed for two minutes on a street corner. I found a whole show of these acts was boring and repetitive.
