‘Achingly funny…Worth seeing again and again.’
★★★★★ Time Out

There’s no stopping The Showstoppers!

With twelve years as an Edinburgh Festival must-see phenomenon, a critically acclaimed West End run and an Olivier Award to their name, The Showstoppers have blazed a trail in world class improvised comedy and delighted audiences across the globe. Now, with well over 1000 performances under their belts, they’re back every month at the Lyric Theatre for a residency of one-night-only musical extravaganzas.

The Showstoppers transform your suggestions – for setting, musical styles, show title and more – into an entirely different show every single night! Guaranteed to impress, they create shows packed with high drama, superb lyrics, dazzling dance routines and catchy melodies – it’s just entirely made up on the spot!

Every Showstopper! performance is a brand-new musical West End hit waiting to happen, so don’t miss out!

‘A success story that could run and run and never repeat itself.’
★★★★ Evening Standard

‘If this is what improv can do, you wonder why anyone bothers writing anything down.’
