Full press release

The Showstoppers' Improvised Musical will perform daily their regular award-winning new musical show - a comedy created from scratch at each performance. Audience suggestions spontaneously become an all-singing, all-dancing show on the spot, with unpredictable and hilarious results. This is their sixth year performing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The Showstoppers will also perform, for one night only, a Twitter improv musical on 7th August, this is the first of its kind in the UK and possibly the world. They will create a fully-fledged musical on the fly mixing the suggestions of a live audience with tweets sent from their fans from around the world. The show has played sell-out seasons in London's West End, has been a must-see staple of the Edinburgh Fringe for five years, delighted audiences on tour around the world and has had its own BBC Radio 4 series.

    Always one of the Fringe highlights and light years ahead of "Baby Wants Candy". Truly a fantastic evening of stagecraft and invention.
