A major new revival of the Olivier award-winning, smash-hit West End and Broadway musical Five Guys Named Moe, will be back in London from 29 August 2017 ...
The musical will play at the new Marble Arch Theatre, designed specifically for the show, and where you can be transported back to the enthralling jazz bars of 1940s New Orleans in an authentic cocktail bar where you can indulge yourself with pre and post show drinks.
Packed with an uplifting soundtrack of soul, blues, gospel and r 'n' b, and led by the all-singing, all dancing Five Guys, Five Guys Named Moe is a life-affirming theatrical experience.
Featuring the toe-tapping, irresistible hits of jazz legend Louis Jordan, including: Is You Is Or Is You Ain't (Ma Baby), Early In The Morning, Choo Choo Ch’Boogie, Saturday Night Fish Fry, plus many more performed live on stage.
First seen at the Theatre Royal Stratford East back in 1990, Five Guys Named Moe ran for four years in the West End, winning the Olivier award for Best Entertainment, before premiering on Broadway in 1992.
Directed by Clarke Peters (The Wire) with musical staging and choreography by double Olivier Award nominee Andrew Wright (Half a Sixpence, Singin' in the Rain, Guys and Dolls), inspired by Charles Augins' original choreography.
Five Guys Named Moe is presented by Underbelly Productions in association with Cameron Mackintosh, Steven Harris and Westminster Council.
