Back when Stomp was strictly British street entertainment, its competition for attention was fierce. But ever since the percussion troupe appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1991, it's had few challengers to its explosive success. There are now four Stomp troupes--two on national tours, one in New York and one making international tours. The original British cast was on this year's Academy Awards show, and various incarnations have made it to both prime-time and late-night TV.

A guy in baggy pants and Doc Martens wanders onstage pushing a broom. Sweep. Sweep-sweep. Sweep-sweep-whoosh . At first glance, he looks like the classic image of the stagehand cleaning up for the show, but you sense that he's up to more. Soon the lone sweeper is joined by more blokes with brooms. Sweep , goes one. Sweep-sweep , responds another. Sweep-whosh-plunk , answers a third.
