About Show

Show Details

Age Suitability


Showstopper! The Improvised Musical is a completely improvised show which takes cues from the audience. It premiered in 2008 and has quickly become one of the most famous plays in its genre. The show has toured extensively in the UK before becoming a staple of London’s West End, where it sells out every year.

This unique concept was conceived at an improv comedy workshop that the creators Adam Meggido and Dylan Emery attended in London. The actors take suggestions from the audience who provide the show setting, title, and musicals whose style they then adopt. Book your Showstopper musical London tickets today!

The Story

You walk in with no idea what you will experience, and walk out having filled your belly with laughter, tears, and everything in between. Grab Showstopper musical London tickets today!
