The Showstoppers will bring their improvised musical to Edinburgh Festival Fringe once more for 2022.
A fully-realized musical created live on the spot from audience suggestions, Showstopper! The Improvised Musical will return to The Grand at the Pleasance Courtyard from 3 – 28 August (except 16 August).
Its twelfth year at the Fringe will follow an ongoing West End residency at the Lyric Theatre and 12 week run at London’s Other Palace in early 2019.
This is the first ever long-form improv show to have a full West End run and to be nominated and win an Olivier Award! Completely improvised and genuinely entirely different every night this is THE must see show of the fringe!
For those that haven’t yet experienced the live phenomenon that is ‘Showstopper! The Improvised Musical’, it is a fully-realized musical created live on the spot from audience suggestions. The cast transform from suggestions of setting, genre and style with ingenious storylines and hilarious characters. The audience also name that night’s show, which is added to The Showstoppers’ archive. From Pink Floyd to Stephen Sondheim, via a school, Ancient Egypt or a mattress shop – if the audience can suggest it, The Showstoppers will perform it. It’s hugely funny to watch.
