Way back when Curtain Call was in its infancy, we got to see Showstoppers when they were in the West End at the Apollo Theatre and I was floored by their improvisational skills and their absolute genius at making a musical out of a few suggestions from the audience. We were in stitches in the auditorium. Even the ushers were weeping with laughter… It was something to behold.

So I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to bring you a little chat with the co-founders of Showstoppers Dylan Emery and Adam Meggido, as well as the musical director, Duncan Walsh Atkins...who’s job is to keep up with the lightning fast improv taking place on stage and to somehow come up with any number of musical styles from across the ages at the drop of a hat…

Showstoppers - The Improvised Musical runs from the 22nd of January to 16th March 2019
