Showstopper: The Improvised Musical


17 FEBRUARY 2024

The Improvised Musical

Each Showstopper! The Improvised Musical show is created live on the spot from audience suggestions. The cast transform suggestions of setting, genre and style into a fully-realised musical, with ingenious storylines and hilarious characters. The audience name that night’s show, which is added to The Showstoppers’ archive. From Pink Floyd to Stephen Sondheim, via a school, Ancient Egypt or a mattress shop – if the audience can suggest it, The Showstoppers will perform it.

The Showstoppers have been working on the show since 2008, figuring out how to improvise in increasingly esoteric styles, musical, dance, straight theatre, and film genres to name but a few.

In the Autumn of 2015, it became the first longform improv show to have a full run in the West End at the Apollo Theatre. Then in April 2016, the show became the first improv show ever to be nominated, and subsequently win, an Olivier Award (Best Entertainment & Family Show). It has since been at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for the past 12 years, had a 12-week run at London’s Other Palace in early 2019 and continues to play monthly at the Lyric Theatre in London’s West End.
