Showstopper! The Improvised Musical – special benefit promotion in support of Index on Censorship

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]ioc_showstopper-fundraise_v3-1The award-winning improvised musical Showstopper! has partnered with Index on Censorship to celebrate free expression this autumn.

Offering a brand new, no-holds-barred, spontaneously improvised musical every night, the cast transforms audience suggestions into an all-singing, all-dancing production with unpredictable and hilarious results.

Showstopper! has delighted audiences across the globe, enjoyed nine years as an Edinburgh Fringe must-see phenomenon, a BBC Radio 4 series and a critically acclaimed West End run at London’s Apollo Theatre. In 2016 it won an Olivier Award for Best Entertainment.

In support of Index on Censorship, proceeds from a limited number of special tickets for upcoming performances will go to support our work defending free expression internationally.
