THE Olivier-winning family comedy

Various Mondays at the Cambridge Theatre

Following eleven years at the Edinburgh Fringe, and a critically acclaimed West End run, Showstopper! The Improvised Musical is back for 2023! 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.

What to expect

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.
