It's a safe bet you won't be getting in to see Stomp, at least not this season. The deservedly white-hot Broadway percussion phenomenon is only stopping at downtown's Civic Theatre for a measly eight performances in six days. But, there is a way to see at least some of the Stomp cast perform-albeit in a very short program-for free. The amazingly funky, surprisingly handy drummers (pictured) will put on a short show outside the Fleet Science Center, followed by a live, interactive sound demonstration, in which the public will be invited to make sounds with them out of household objects. It's part of a series at the Fleet to demonstrate "The Science of Sound," which runs through March 9.
