The critically acclaimed improvisational frontrunner Showstopper! The Improvised Musical announces new dates for their current UK tour, giving more people the chance to enjoy the creative genius of this amazing show with more entertaining dates added throughout 2020.
Following on from their sell out run at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019, and with a 2016 Olivier Award for their West End debut at the Apollo Theatre, The Showstoppers are set to make 2020 even better, starting the next decade one new musical at a time.
No two nights are ever the same as The Showstoppers take audience suggestions and then spin a brand-new comedy musical out of thin air – stories, characters, tunes, lyrics, dances, harmonies and all – with unpredictable and hilarious results. If you’ve thought improv looked difficult before, try doing it in time (and tune) to music!
Having grown since 2008 to become the UK’s most acclaimed and in-demand musical improvisers, The Showstoppers have become a must-see staple of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. With five West End seasons and an acclaimed BBC Radio 4 series to their name, they have also taken their ingenious blend of comedy, musical theatre and spontaneity around the globe, picking up accolades and awards including The Times Best of the Fringe, Mervyn Stutter’s Spirit Of The Fringe Award and nominations for Chortle Best Music Or Variety Act, MTM Best Production Award and MTM Judges’ Discretionary Award.
