Imagining that instruments are all around us can be a cumbersome thought. It takes talent to play a bass or snare drum, but making trash cans sound like a percussion ensemble? That's where Stomp comes in. The two-decades-strong Broadway hit is comprised of an eight-member troupe that uses unexpected objects — matchboxes, brooms and oil drums, to name a few — to construct nearly two hours of orderly and exciting (and sometimes a little chaotic) rhythm-making. Folks with children should watch out; you don't want them getting any ideas about your plates and utensils.
