Premiering more than a decade ago, Showstopper! The Improvised Musical returns to London’s West End to take fans and first timers alike by storm. The brilliant 2008 musical comedy enjoyed colossal success throughout its extensive tours in the UK. It also frequently sold out at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. It is unlike any performance you probably have ever seen.

Using the idea of constant improvisations, Showstopper gives audiences of all kinds an unforgettable experience. It became one of the most acclaimed and demanded theatrical comedy in the UK, making it a must for you to book the Showstopper! tickets at the earliest. Its popularity gave birth to a BBC Radio 4 series in 2011, and in 2015 it performed a 10-week long run in the West End to win a Laurence Olivier Award. Now, Showstopper! has returned and prepared to present its 1000th performance at the Lyric Theatre.

The Showstopping Creative Team

The show became resident at the Kings head Theatre following its debut at the Edinburgh Festival and then moved to The Drill Hall. Its reach has been wide so far, touring faraway lands like Singapore, India, Italy, Canada, Ireland, Belgium, and Hong Kong. In 2015, Showstopper! The Improvised Musical opened at the Apollo Theatre for a strictly limited 10-week season.

Behind the show’s creation are Adam Meggido, Dylan Emery and Keith Strachan. Joining them onstage are Susan Harrison, Sean McCann, Philip Pellew, Justin Brett, Lucy Trodd, Pippa Evans, Ruth Bratt, Sarah-Louise Young, Andrew Pugsley, and Oliver Senton. Together, they flawlessly succeed in delivering a spectacularly comical performance every time you see them. So, get the Showstopper! tickets now!

With years of continuously entertaining the world, the show also featured famous guest performers occasionally; British comic Matt Lucas, actor/singer Keith Jack, a Capella group “The Magnets”, peacemaker Donald Reeves, Jim Bowen, Mike McShane, and Nicholas Parsons. The show went on to bag several industry awards like the Mervyn Stutter Spirit of the Fringe Award, and the Olivier Award for best entertainment and family show (2016).
