Heaped into piles and burned by angry crowds, Of Mice and Men has been banned for offenses ranging from "vulgar language" to being "anti-business." But despite decades of controversy, this novella by Nobel winner John Steinbeck endures for one simple reason: it is a masterpiece. Now Worldwide Theatricals mounts a moving stage adaptation of Steinbeck's crowning achievement. Few stories have better captured the complexity of true friendship better than the tale of George and his dim-witted buddy Lennie. As migrant workers adrift in the Great Depression, the two dream of settling down and living "off the fatta the lan" But their plans (like all those "of mice and men") are jeopardized by hard times and the cruelties of fate.

Quotes & Highlights
- "<em>Stomp</em> is a sure-fire crowd-pleaser with a rock-and-roll heart." --New York Times
- "Let's face the furniture and dance: Fred Astaire would have loved <em>Stomp</em>. Scrappy and scruffy, <em>Stomp</em> makes music that is infectiously percussive. It dares you to sit on your hands." --New York Newsday
- "If you can tap it, bang it, slap it, knock it or just drum your fingers on it, the performers of <em>Stomp</em> can transform it into a remarkably expressive percussion instrument." --The Village Voice
Stomp is a movement of bodies, objects, sounds - even abstract ideas. But what makes it so appealing is that the cast uses everyday objects, but in non-traditional ways. There's no speech, no dialogue, not even a plot.
The cast is a group of rhythmically gifted, extremely coordinated performers who over the course of the performance compose a symphony using only matchbooks, create a dance routine based around sweeping, turn garbage into instruments, and walk around stage on oil drums.
