The Basics

Mixing music, theater, and visuals,Stomp is one-of-a-kind entertainment. Unconventional “instruments,” such as matchboxes, brooms, garbage cans, and Zippo lighters fill the stage with energizing beats played by talented performers meant to get you dancing in your seat. In spite of its long run, the show is still wildly popular. High demand, coupled with the theater's small size of just 347 seats, means it's advisable to book well in advance to guarantee admission.

Little Italy experience. Best Ever!
This was one of the best tours that we have been on in New York city and I will be bringing others back so we experience it again. Funny, educational and delicious. New York is alive with people and happenings. We hoped to learn more about New York and although we already have our favorite restaurant in New York city, now we learned about more. Great stories about the history of crime in the city.

History

The site occupied by the Orpheum is thought to have been a concert garden as early as the 1880s, making it one of the oldest continuously operating entertainment sites in New York City.

During the heyday of Yiddish theater, the venue was the Player's Theatre, and was part of the "Jewish Rialto" (also known as “the Yiddish theater district”) along Second Avenue. By the 1920s, it was largely exhibiting films, but was converted back to theatrical use in 1958.
