“PANDEMONIUM: The Lost and Found Orchestra,” new production from STOMP’s creators





After the global success of their unique take on rhythm and physical theatre, STOMP co-creators Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, have taken their concept to a new level with  PANDEMONIUM: THE LOST AND FOUND ORCHESTRA which will begin a North American tour on September 16 in Miami.  Current tour information follows at the end of the release.

Where STOMP creates rhythm with everyday objects, PANDEMONIUM transforms everyday objects into a plethora of invented instruments.  Performed by the LFO (Lost and Found Orchestra), PANDEMONIUM recreates every section of a symphony orchestra, using musical saws, bottles, whirly toys and traffic cones.  Out of chaos is found an orchestra.

Reworked for 2010 with a dazzling array of homemade instruments, a 25-member mix of veteran STOMP performers, classical musicians, physical comedians and aerialists, PANDEMONIUM climaxes with the human voice being added to the mix: what begins with simple melodies plucked, blown, thumped and brushed into life ends in a complex symphonic and choral celebration. In each city a 30 member local choir will contribute vocals.  Luke Cresswell serves as onstage conductor of the 50+ member company and will perform in PANDEMONIUM.

Short Takes with STOMP’s Jason Mills

Jason Mills is currently featured in the cast of the long-running hit STOMP at the Orpheum Theatre. We sent him a few questions and here are his responses along with some additional info.






1) What is your favorite musical and TV show of all time.

MUSICAL: “Avenue Q ”

TV SHOW: “Monty Python’s Flying Circus” (with “The Dukes of Hazard” a close 2nd)


2) What musical theatre character would you most like to be stranded with on a desert island?

I’m gonna have to go with Mary Poppins on this one. She’d keep a very tidy island, and she’s got a lot of good stuff in that bag…






3) If you could nominate anyone to be President of the United States, who would it be? 

   4) What’s the last song you downloaded?

Chico Mann‘s Manifest Tone Vol. 1. I downloaded the whole album and you should, too. (Click here to buy digital album from Amazon.com).

(BBB note: here’s Chico Mann’s Twitter account http://twitter.com/chicomann)

5) What’s your favorite NY restaurant?

This one’s hard – there’s just too many amazing restaurants in New York. If you want to experience a New York institution, eat at the Stage Restaurant on 2nd ave between St. Marks & 7th st (right next to STOMP!).

There were a lot more places like this when I first moved here 15 years ago – it’s one of the last of a dying breed.

WHAT: NYC’s dynamic STOMP OUT LITTER anti-litter public awareness campaign launched two years ago by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Sanitation Commissioner John J. Doherty and featuring the cast of STOMP in a public service announcement encouraging New Yorkers to keep their City clean, will be appearing on touch screens in NYC cabs.


WHO: STOMP cast members and Commissioner Doherty


WHEN:  Wed Aug 6 at 2 PM


WHERE: In front of The Orpheum Theatre (126 Second Avenue at 8th Street).


MORE:   Beginning this month, the cast of STOMP will star in a PSA being shown on video screens currently installed most of the city’s medallion taxicabs promoting the “STOMP OUT LITTER” campaign.  All five boroughs are captured in the stunning spots which follow cast members across the City from places including The Bronx Zoo, Staten Island Ferry, Coney Island Boardwalk, World’s Fair Unisphere in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Central Park, and Times Square.   “New York welcomed STOMP with open arms, so it makes us proud to be part of a campaign which gives something back to the City,” said Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas, STOMP’s creators who directed the PSA.


STOMP arrived in New York in 1994 from the United Kingdom and has become part of the theatrical landscape in New York, across the country and around the world.  STOMP has received an Olivier Award; an Obie Award; Drama Desk and Emmy Awards, and an Academy Award nomination, among several honors, and has been seen in venues ranging from The Acropolis in Athens to the Academy Awards. In addition to the New York production, STOMP is on a North American tour and is also playing in London and on a European tour.  STOMP OUT LOUD is playing at Las Vegas’s Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.


The Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City raised funds to support design, film, and other costs associated with the campaign which were produced by NYC TV and Night Train Films in coordination with Serino Coyne Inc.  The campaign is a joint effort of the Department of Sanitation, the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City, the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) and NYC & Company, in conjunction with STOMP, the long-running off-Broadway hit. “New York City is the cleanest it’s been in more than three decades, and thanks, in part, to this dynamic public awareness campaign it has gotten even cleaner,” said Mayor Bloomberg. “I am now pleased to take this successful campaign a step further and bring it into New York City taxis so that more local residents, business people and visitors to our great city can see how we are encouraging everyone to do their part to keep this city clean and beautiful.”


“The Department of Sanitation is very proud to be a part of the STOMP OUT LITTER campaign whose objective is to eliminate, once and for all, littering in New York City,” said Commissioner Doherty. “Although the men and women of Sanitation tirelessly work to keep the Big Apple clean, in a city the size of New York, cleanliness is everyone’s responsibility.” “Our hybrid-electric taxicabs have already begun to help make our city’s air cleaner,” said TLC Commissioner Matthew W. Daus, “and now thanks to the STOMP OUT LITTER campaign, the new technology in our taxicabs is doing its part to help make our city’s streets cleaner.”
