Great acting, Hilarious, Entertaining, Clever, Ambitious

See it if You are a big fan of musicals, or if you enjoy improvised comedies. Also if you enjoy (some) audience participation.

Don't see it if You aren’t a fan of improvised pieces, or if you would prefer something more dramatic with higher stakes.

Hilarious, Clever

See it if you want to see a new musical constructed before your eyes. Funny and intelligent, but obviously a tendency to be a bit hit and miss.

Don't see it if you’re looking for a polished work. You can’t handle the odd dud alongside frequent moments of wit and hilarity.

Delightful, Improvised, Fluffy, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you enjoy improvisation and want to see some talented performances create a musical on the spot.

Don't see it if you don't like improvisation. The quality of the performance will depend on audience suggestions that night.

Cliched

See it if you like improv comedy, whether the result is actually funny or so-so.

Don't see it if you're expecting smth hysterically funny (set-up differs in every show, so your comedy might be better or worse than last night's comedy) Read more

Time Out London

For a previous production

But it is, above all, a tremendously good time, and when it clicks, it’s absolutely magical.

The Telegraph (UK)
October 1st, 2015
For a previous production

Although the set could hardly be skimpier...this is impro with the full accent on pro: top-dollar amusement that doesn’t let up from frisky, low-key start to standing ovation-inducing finish.

The Stage (UK)
January 23rd, 2019
For a previous production

The book, music and lyrics may not be hugely sophisticated but the choruses are catchy and the quick-thinking cast, who alternate throughout the run, deliver some surprising plot twists.

The London Evening Standard
January 24th, 2019
For a previous production

You’ve got to be in with a good audience for Showstopper! That’s not for reasons of surround-sound atmospherics but because it is the punters who make the show. Literally.

London Theatre
January 24th, 2019
For a previous production

The musical accompaniments led by MD Duncan Walsh Atkins really shine. Seamlessly tying the action on stage to what the audience wanted, the musicians were able to bring the show to a blazing finish.
