Showstopper! The Improvised Musical
The Edinburgh must-see, Olivier Award-winning (Best Entertainment and Family Show) West End hit returns for its 12th consecutive year!

A brand-new musical comedy is created from scratch at every performance of this multi award-winning show. Each night audience suggestions are transformed into all-singing, all-dancing productions with hilarious results.

A Fringe favourite and a phenomenon; your Edinburgh is simply incomplete without it.

'The top musical improvisers in the business... Compulsory Fringe viewing... Just book in time' ***** (

'Had me weeping with laughter' ***** (Mail on Sunday).

'Achingly funny... Worth seeing again and again' ***** (Time Out).
