Showstopper! The Improvised Musical

Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, London, United Kingdom, W1D 7ES

Showstopper! The Improvised Musical takes audience suggestions and transforms them into an all-singing, all-dancing show that promises unpredictable and hilarious results.

Creating a real musical from scratch with a new story, character, music and choreography, The Showstoppers! have previously conjured hits including Emotional Baggage, a First Class Heathrow Airport-set romance, and Sweeney Cod, the tale of a fish shop owner with music reminiscent of Kander and Ebb.

Created by Adam Meggido and Dylan Emery, the show sees the creators joined in the cast by Ruth Bratt, Justin Brett, Pippa Evans, Susan Harrison, Sean McCann, Philip Pellew, Andrew Pugsley, Oliver Senton, Lucy Trodd and Sarah-Louise Young.

Showstopper! The Improvised Musical’s Olivier Award-winning run at the Lyric Theatre follows the show’s first ever full West End season at the Apollo Theatre in autumn 2015.
