The Olivier Award-winning Edinburgh Fringe favourite, Showstoppers!, is back in the West End for a limited run.

The improvised show is totally ad-libbed everynight from suggestions shouted out by the audience. Just imagine... something that you shout out could be transformed into an all-singing, all-dancing number live on stage!

The premise of the plot is that the writer is up against a tight deadline and he desperately needs your help to spark some ideas. You can suggest everything from show titles and musical styles, to setting the scene for an epic acting extravaganza.

It's a unique blend of comedy, theatre and wild spontaneity, all sprinkled with the buzz of a Broadway show.

What the theatre critics say...

Evening Standard: ★★★★ "A success story that could run and run and never repeat itself"; The Times: ★★★★★ "If this is what improv can do, you wonder why anyone bothers writing anything down"; The Telegraph: ★★★★★ "Incredible... so polished it defies belief"
