“Amazing! Absolutely brilliant! Congratulations, The Showstoppers, you took my 24hr challenge and succeeded 200%” ELAINE PAIGE
Spontaneous musical comedy at its finest, it is the first-ever long-form improv show to have a full West End run and to be nominated and win an Olivier Award! This is a must-see show, completely improvised and genuinely entirely different every night!
For those who haven’t yet experienced the live phenomenon, ‘ Showstopper! The Improvised Musical is a fully realised musical created on the spot from audience suggestions. The cast transforms suggestions for settings, genres, musical styles and even the show’s name into ingenious storylines with hilarious characters. From Pink Floyd to Stephen Sondheim, via a primary school, Ancient Egypt, or a mattress shop – if the audience can suggest it, The Showstoppers will perform it. It’s hugely funny to watch.
The group are long-running, well-known and renowned for their improvisation work. Most cast members have also received acclaim in their own right. The Showstoppers have been working on the show since 2008, figuring out how to improvise in increasingly esoteric styles, including musical, dance, straight theatre, and film genres, to name but a few.
In the Autumn of 2015, it became the first long-form improv show to have an entire run in the West End at the Apollo Theatre, for which it won the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment & Family Show.
