2016 Olivier Winner
An ingenious and engaging mix of improvisation and musical theatre!
Following its hit run at the Apollo Theatre in 2015, Showstopper! The Improvised Musical transfers to the Lyric Theatre for a set of dates throughout 2016, sharing the venue with Thriller. Watch as this brilliant company puts on a completely new and different musical at each performance with the help of you, the audience! Your suggestions will be transformed into an all-singing and dancing musical spectacle on the very spot, making each show truly a unique experience! Winner of the Olivier for Best Entertainment & Family Award.
Creating a real musical from scratch with a new story, character, music and choreography every night is no mean feat, but these guys have had huge success in the past with their previous hits including Emotional Baggage, a first class Heathrow Airport-set romance, and Sweeney Cod, the tale of a fish shop owner with music that is somewhat reminiscent of Kander and Ebb's musicals.
This show is part of a new revolution in theatre that has seen the likes of The Play That Goes Wrong and Peter Pan Goes Wrong taking West End audiences by storm, as well as the hilarious Austentatious: An Improvised Jane Austen Novel.
