N.Y. smash ‘Stomp’ hits UCLA Sept. 30

Stomp,” the percussive British import currently storming Gotham, has been slated to open the UCLA Center for the Performing Arts 1994-95 season.

The non-verbal “theatrical event,” which gets audiences tapping their feet to the rhythms of everything from bristle brooms to Zippo lighters, will run Sept. 30-Oct. 23 at the Wadsworth Theater.

The Los Angeles dates will be the first stop on a 22-city North American tour for the show, which sprang from the underground music clubs of Britain. The eight-member cast beats a percussion sound on everything but conventional percussion instruments — dustbins, wooden crates, plastic bags, boots and hub caps.

The play received two 1994 Laurence Olivier Award nominations for best entertainment and best theater choreography.

Tix are available next month through the UCLA Center for the Performing Arts subscription series. Single tix go on sale Aug. 22.
