If you enjoy being the first – and the last – to see a brand-new musical, then you’re in luck, because Showstopper! The Improvised Musical are playing a limited run at The Other Palace!
In addition to their regular monthly West End performances at the Lyric Theatre, The Showstoppers are performing for eight weeks at The Other Palace, delivering 8 brand new – and completely off-the-top-of-their-head – musicals each week. And, what’s more, they can be the shows of your wildest dreams!
With eleven star-scoring years at the Edinburgh Fringe under their belts, as well as their West End show and the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment and Family in 2016 under their belts, The Showstoppers are a showcase of world-class improvised comedy and musical talent, delighting audiences the whole world over.
During the course of their run at The Other Palace, The Showstoppers are celebrating their 1000th performance with a typically spectacular one-night-only musical extravaganza.
The premise is simple, but the execution remarkable. Each evening, The Showstoppers take audience suggestions – you can influence the show’s setting, musical styles, show title and more – and morph them into all-singing, all-dancing production – with hilarious results. When even the performers don’t know what’ll happen next, you’re guaranteed an entirely different show every single night!
Sure to impress, they create shows packed with wit, heady drama, sharp lyrics, dazzling dance routines and catchy melodies – completely made up on the spot!
Showstopper! The Improvised Musical began life in 2008 as a workshop at the Actors’ Centre in London, when Dylan Emery, Adam Meggido and Ken Campbell took a group of actors with little or no improvisation experience and within a week attempted to get them to perform an hour-long extemporised musical in front of a packed house. This was such a success that Dylan and Adam decided to gather together a group of professionals and create a fully-fledged show; their Olivier Award-winning exploits in 2016 vindicated this.
Every Showstopper! performance is a brand new musical hit waiting to happen – so don’t miss out!
