With eleven years as an Edinburgh Festival must-see phenomenon, a critically acclaimed West End run and an Olivier Award to their name, The Showstoppers have blazed a trail in world class improvised comedy and delighted audiences across the globe. Now, as they approach their 1000th performance, this incredible show returns to The Other Palace for eight weeks of singular, one-night-only musical extravaganzas.
The Showstoppers transform audience suggestions - for setting, musical styles, show title and more - into all-singing, all-dancing productions with hilarious results. Come watch an entirely different show every single night! Guaranteed to impress, they create shows packed with high drama, superb lyrics, dazzling dance routines and catchy melodies – it’s just entirely made up on the spot!
Every Showstopper! performance is a brand new musical West End hit waiting to happen – so don’t miss out!
What is also pleasing to see is two strong female comedians (Ruth Bratt from People Just Do Nothing and improv veteran Pippa Evans) carrying the plot of this particular narrative and providing the bulk of the comedy; something we seldom see on such a male-dominated scene
If I had an unlimited supply of money I would be at this show every single night, and I doubt I would ever be bored
This extremely skilled and outstanding cast prove they can work with anything the audience propose; Emery and Meggido have struck theatre gold with a production that will literally never run out of ideas
Musical theatre is ripped to shreds for the entertainment of those who love musicals - I venture by those who love musicals. For the performers and audience alike, even those who have seen it before, it is the definition of trying something new
The Showstoppers can congratulate themselves on this theatrical feat and look forward to unfolding more unscripted nonsense on stage
