The ShowstoppersA writer has just one night to create a hit musical to impress his producer. Stuck for ideas, he asks the audience for suggestions for a title, story lines and musical styles that they'd like to see in the show. This is the premise for The Showstoppers, an entirely improvised show where a brand new musical is created at every performance. After sell-out Edinburgh and West End seasons, and fresh from their residency at the Charing Cross Theatre, The Showstoppers perform a new Monday night residency throughout February at the Royal Albert Hall's Elgar Room. Starring Ruth Bratt, Pippa Evans, David Reed and Oliver Senton, and brought to the stage by co-creator Adam Meggido and musical director Duncan Walsh-Atkins, The Showstoppers are widely acknowledged as the UK's leading improvisers as well as phenomenal musicians in their own right. "The show that makes your jaw drop in impressed amazement and your ribs ache with laughter," says The Mail On Sunday, while The Telegraph urges the public to "go marvel" at "these hideously talented regulars [who] are pushing improv in new directions".
