Showstopper! The Improvised Musical returning to the West End next year

Following its ten week West End run which concluded over the weekend, it has been announced that Showstopper! The Improvised Musical will transfer to the Lyric Theatre next year.

The show will play ten performances on Mondays between 15th February and 25th July, sharing the Lyric with long-running show Thriller Live. 

Showstopper! was created by Adam Meggido and Dylan Emery. Musical direction is by Duncan Walsh Atkins with design by Simon Scullion, lighting by Tim Mascall and sound by Tom Lishman.

The cast includes Ruth Bratt, Justin Brett, Dylan Emery, Pippa Evans, Susan Harrison, Sean McCann, Adam Meggido, Philip Pellew, Andrew Pugsley, Oliver Senton, Lucy Trodd, and Sarah-Louise Young, with seven cast members appearing per performance plus a live onstage band.

The Showstopper team nightly pull off something incredibly ambitious; they create a real musical from scratch, not just an improv night with songs but a full story with stories and characters you can care about, a live band of incredible musicians, and spontaneous but seamless choreography.
