Showstopper! musical big with Radio 4 fans
People who like listening to Radio 4 may be heading to see the Showstopper! musical live on stage after hearing its run on the station.
The production, which goes under the full title of Showstopper! The Improvised Musical, is currently being performed for audiences members with London theatre tickets at the Ambassadors Theatre.
Running under the unusual idea of taking the plot from members of the show's audience each evening, the performers on stage then work to create a musical on the spot, resulting in a different production being performed each evening.
The cast members, including Pippa Evans, Ruth Bratt and Sean McCann, have also taken the production to the airwaves and created a funny and fast-paced show for listeners to BBC Radio 4.
Scheduled to run until March 29th 2011, those who visit the musical could be tempted to make a return visit to see what other ideas the cast can come up with.
