Review: STOMP at the Saban Theatre

Remember when you were a little kid and played with pots and pans in the kitchen?  Or perhaps you've had the experience of being an audience member to such a kid.  At some point while watching STOMP, I couldn't help but think about this scenario - the idea that everyday objects can be sources of music, about how early we might discover that knowledge.  There's something about STOMP that calls to this innate understanding of rhythm and sounds in everyday objects, but then makes you catch your breath with how complex the everyday can be and become.

Destination Spotlight: Descanso Gardens (Photos)

View of the Mountains from Descanso Gardens

Open year-round in La CaƱada, Descanso Gardens is a 160-acre botanic garden that offers among many things a rose garden, Japanese Garden, and the largest camellia collection in North America.  It's a beautiful and rather tranquil place with great sights to see.  If you're looking for some nature just outside citylife or just wanted to be surrounded by a little beauty, it's well worth the trip.
