Must see, Hilarious, Surprising

See it if you like to be surprised. The only certain thing is you'll see a comedy musical, but each show is different, you never know what you'll see

Don't see it if you want well-written theatre. This is improvised so the plot may not make sense at all and it may have holes.

Refreshing, Intelligent, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You want a totally unique night out and enjoy improvised comedy and musicals! I’ve seen many performances which always memorably impress!

Don't see it if You like to be familiar with a show when you see it or don’t appreciate improvisation. They are not a glitzy, large-scale performances.

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 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.

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.

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.
