The Olivier Award-winning production of Stomp will end its 15 year run in London’s West End on 7th January 2018.
The creators, Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas have however stated that this will not be the end for Stomp in London overall.
In a statement they said: “We want to emphasise that we don’t consider this the end of Stomp here; we actually feel it’s going to be good for the show to take a break, reconfigure, reinvent and return at some point in the future in a different London venue, where we can present the show in a way that is more in keeping with its original ethos.”
The show’s final London production will take place on 7th January at the Ambassadors Theatre, where it has played for the last ten years.
In 2018, the show will continue to tour throughout the globe, with dates already confirmed for Paris, Beirut, Prague, Lisbon and Milan, as well as a Dutch tour, a German tour, an Indian tour, an Italian tour, an Australian and New Zealand tour and a French tour.
In addition, negotiations are underway for extended seasons in China, South America and Turkey.
