Be at the opening and closing night of a new musical with Showstopper! The Improvised Musical. The Olivier-winning troupe return to the West End with a new residency at the Cambridge Theatre, with performances from May through December 2023.

Showstopper! The Improvised Musical sees a group of improvisers take audience suggestions for settings and musical styles and transform them into an original musical. Showstopper won Best Entertainment and Family at the Olivier Awards.

Upcoming performances will take place at the Cambridge Theatre on the following Mondays: 22 May, 5 June, 26 June, 17 July, 16 October, 30 October, 13 November, 27 November, 18 December.

In a London Theatre review of Showstopper's 1000th performance, our critic said: “While the public love when things come together before their very eyes, it's when the cast members make the occasional slip up that the audience begins to fall into the palm of the show's hand. These small moments of imperfection gleam, often getting the loudest laughs.”

Matilda the Musical will continue to play at the Cambridge Theatre.
