    100% total rating Showstopper! The Improvised Musical, 10th October 2016
    Showstoppers have done it again! Another fantastic, fast paced, hilarious show made up completely on the spot based on audience suggestions. Tonight's show was set in Imperial Russia and was called 'Crimea River', featuring the styles of Calamity Jane, The Lion King, Grey Gardens and Murder Ballad. This is the fourth time I have seen this show and it never disappoints!
    Sat in Stalls K3
    A great seat with a good clear view of the stage, albeit you miss any action that happens in the far right hand side of the theatre but for this production it didn't really matter. Adequate leg room

    CLEVER!
    Sat in Stalls O5
    Very comfortable seats with excellent leg room. The seats were at the back of the Stalls but do not feel far. For Showstoppers there were no people behind (which I appreciated as a tall person!)

    The seats are far back but the theatre is only small. I imagine that a tall person in front would restrict the view a lot.

    Excellent comfort and legroom. We were fortunate to have empty seats in front. I imagine the heads in front could block the view.

STORY
After a hugely popular, sell-out run at London’s Apollo Theatre and an acclaimed run early on in 2016, fringe favourite Showstopper! The Improvised Musical came back to London's West End due to popular demand. An all-singing, all-dancing extravaganza of musical performance, Showstopper! guaranteed a completely new, made up show each night, throughout its limited season at the Lyric Theatre.

The Showstoppers are an award-winning, improvising musical troupe, created by performers Adam Meggido and Dylan Emery. Regularly performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival to sold-out audiences, the group tour extensively across the UK, with their successful run at the Apollo being their official London debut. With a BBC Radio 4 series, The Showstoppers are constantly wowing audiences with their quick-thinking skills and have received a 2016 Olivier Award nomination for ‘Best Entertainment & Family’.

Showstopper! The Improvised Musical sees seven spectacular performers create an entirely original musical in the space of one evening. Using swift improvisational skills, the troupe, band and technical team muster up a musical from audience suggestions gathered by Narrator Dylan Emery. With hundreds of unique shows to their name, all of which include songs, dance routines and side-splitting gags, The Showstoppers offer an evening of one-off entertainment that has been delighting audiences and critics alike.

Each performance features seven diverse actors and comedians selected at random from a group of eleven, including Emery and Meggido, Ruth Bratt, Pippa Evans, Susan Harrison, Sean McCann, Phillip Pellew, Adam Pugsley, Oliver Senton, Lucy Trodd and Sarah-Louise Young. The Showstoppers technical team includes Musical Director Duncan Walsh Atkins, alongside lighting and sound team Tim Mascall and Tom Lishman, who also have to keep on their improvising toes! With a variety of talented performers guaranteeing a night of hilarious and impressive entertainment, Showstopper! The Improvised Musical was not to be missed.
Suitable For
Showstopper! The Improvised Musical returns for those who missed it the first time! With a new show each night, this is the perfect production to keep returning to. Due to the improvised nature of the show and the amount of audience suggestion, it cannot be certain that the production will be completely clean and is therefore suitable for ages 12 and up.
