Stomp Out Loud to End Vegas Run in January 2009

News   Stomp Out Loud to End Vegas Run in January 2009 Stomp Out Loud, the high-energy production from the creators of Stomp, will end its run at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas Jan. 4, 2009.

In a statement Scott Zeiger, co-CEO of BASE Entertainment, said, "Though the show will have had a very successful 22-month run, the producers have collectively determined that in light of the current global economic landscape, it's in the show's best interest to close during the traditionally slow winter as it pursues another, perhaps more intimate venue, on the Las Vegas Strip."

Stomp Out Loud opened on April 17, 2007, as part of the new Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. By closing, the cast will have performed more than 600 times in the custom-built, 1,500-seat theatre.

Stomp continues its run at Off-Broadway's Orpheum Theatre, on North American tour, in London and on a European tour.

Directed and created by Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, Stomp Out Loud bears the same name as the duo's Emmy Award-winning HBO special of 1997.

Billed as a "journey through sound, a celebration of the everyday, and a comic interplay of characters wordlessly communicating through dance and percussion," the show features a cast double the size of the original production with new sequences and choreography. Stomp Out Loud is produced by BASE Entertainment with the producers of Stomp, including Columbia Artist Theatricals LLC, Schuster Entertainment Inc., Marc Routh Productions, Richard Frankel Productions in association with Yes/No Productions.
