About the West End hit Showstopper! The Improvised Musical
The popular improv show first began in 2008 when Adam Meggido, Dylan Emery, and Ken Campbell banded together to coach a group of actors who had very little experience in improvisation. Eventually, they fine-tuned their skills to be able to perform an entire hour-long musical, completely improvised, using suggestions from a live audience.
In 2015, Showstopper! The Improvised Musical became the first long-form, improvised show to have a full run at the Apollo Theatre in London's West End. It has also been a frequent production at the Edinburgh Festival, having been running there for 12 years now. It is also widely known for having won an Olivier Award for Best Entertainment and Family Show. The show recently ran at the Lyric Theatre in London before the coronavirus pandemic hit.
