★★★★ Evening Standard
'Achingly funny…Worth seeing again and again.’
★★★★★ Time Out
From start to finish an amazing and interactive performance. Such a talented cast that made me laugh all the way through. Loved how intimate the theatre was, impressed with cleanliness, food and drink.
Had a great night, will definitely go again as you’d have a different experience each night
This is the third time I have seen showstopper! and everytime it has been, creative, funny, highly entertaining and unique. Very clever with a lot of (optional) audience interaction - you can influence the set, music and even the plot. Although the concept is weird: to buy a ticket for a musical having not listened to the soundtrack, seen a trailer or read the book. But it's certainly a risk worth taking.
Absolutely amazing. Such talented performers and what suggestions from the audience. Unique and hilariously funny. Tears rolling down my face. Going again as different show each time. X
funny and clever, need to go again! great theatre and view!
Wow! I loved it! Witty, dramatic and enthralling, I spent the night laughing my head off! What a talented cast who perform seamlessly together! Do not miss this show! I will definitely be back!
This was my second visit to see showstopper. The first one, Noah’s Ark, was hilarious. I enjoyed it so much I went back but unfortunately with a different cast I was disappointed this time. Lots of repeated chorus lines.
This was our second visit to Showstoppers and won't be our last. A brilliantly funny evening presented by a multi talented cast. Wonderfully entertaining !
I have seen this show twice and have already booked my 3rd. Its so funny and different. All the seats have a great view. Would recommend to everyone
A very clever and amusing show I enjoyed the show throughout .
Unbelievable impro „art“
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but the show was absolutely brilliant. The actors were all so clever and it was very amusing. I would love to go again to compare another show!
Showstoppers is a good show a bit more improvised than I expexted, but entertaining.
Excellent very clever and funny
Such a laugh .A group of highly talented people who can make up a musical on the spot , singing,dancing and acting in lots of different styles .Second time of going and definitely going again .No two shows are ever the same .Fantastic
Never the same show twice... It will start with your Narrator (although I'm not sure that's the right name for him), taking a call from, 'Cameron'. Before you know it, it's clear a new show is needed and it will only happen with your help. He has two hours to prep the show. He asks the audience a range of questions, from overall topic/theme, to suggestions of (4) musicals for inspiration/style, and show title. After a bit of back and forth the show is underway. Every now and then the Narrator will stand, the lights on the cast dim, and action pauses. He may just ask the cast to change direction, or use a particular musical style, or he may throw it to the audience for our input. It's a wonderful concept, the cast last night were fantastic and it's just very funny, and very entertaining. The greater your love of musicals the more you'll get from it with all of the nods to Musicals down the years, but I'd recommend it to anyone.
Not my first visit to Showstopper!, and it certainly won't be my last! As always, a fantastic evening. Can't recommend it highly enough....
What an absolutely outstanding show! Full of laughs and entertainment from beginning to end. Every member of the show and bag are immensely talented! A must see!
What a wonderful show. Lots of audience participation led to the musical evolving before our very eyes. This troop of actors are very talented, as are the musicians. Go see it as many time as you like as you get a different show every time.
Whilst I usually can't be bothered to online review, yesterday's performance was absolutely brilliant!
So good, really funny.
Haven't laughed so much in ages. In fact I'm going to book to see it again
Fantastic show. The smartness of the improvisation is incredible.
Absolutely fantastic evening out, love love love this show, telling everyone to see it!
The talent and quality of the show was incredible!
Absolutely Fantastic Show! 2 hrs of laughing! Can’t wait to go back...
I was lucky enough to see Showstopper! The Improvised Musical yesterday evening (or as we called it: Frozen!) and I’m completely blown away by the amount of talent the actors have. Being able to produce such a fun show and incredible good songs from scratch is something that earns nothing but respect. I literally laughed throughout the whole show. I will definitely visit again!
Absolutely wonderful. An exceptionally talented cast and band produced a great afternoon based on the audience suggestions of topics ranging from dragons, motown, gregorian chant to Cabaret .It was hilarious, inspiring and they managed to throw in some morals and even a decent love story. Went away feeling this was a special performance.
The show was incredible, very different from your typical musical or theatre show - felt very personal and inspiring to be a part of. Will definitely try to see another round, which is not usual for a theatre show.. So entertaining!
My 14 year old grand-daughter and I were delighted with Saturday matinee's show. We are still discussing just how it was all pulled off. Improvisation is a marvellous thing and this cast do it to perfection. There are laughs a-plenty and continuing surprise over what will happen next. We can't wait to do it all again (although it will be different next time!)
This show is absolutely brilliant! So clever and unbelievably funny. Will definitely go again! Highly recommend it.
I had one night to spend in London! I am traveling from the states to Amsterdam and decided to spend time in London with a friend. This was my only free night. I could of saw Wicked or Hamilton, maybe even the Lion King. It is so much cheaper here than back home. But I decided to be adventurous. I was not dissapointed!!! I laughed (probably the loudest in the theatre). I laughed in tears. The storytelling singing and dancing was all so amazing. And I got to be witness a special thing that will never happen again. Thank you showstoppers!
