Showstoppers! wins an Olivier Award

Thursday, 14 April, 2016 -- Helen Wilson

Showstopper! The Improvised Musical, whose cast includes OE Ruth Bratt (1994), has won one of the most prestigious awards in the West End. The show that has wowed audiences and critics alike in the first ever season for an improvised musical in the West End, won the Best Entertainment and Family Show category at the Olivier Awards.

The Showstoppers made Olivier history when their show was the first improvised production to be nominated in forty years of the Awards. And they went one better by winning!

Showstopper! The Improvised Musical – which also won Best Character, Improv or Sketch Act at last month’s Chortle Awards – continues to run at the Lyric Theatre Shaftesbury Avenue with shows every fortnight.
