About the show

The 25th anniversary production of Five Guys Named Moe at the brand new pop-up Marble Arch Theatre.

Clarke Peters’s West End and Broadway musical Five Guys Named Moe returns to London with a 25th  anniversary production to remember. Produced by Underbelly Productions, the musical is performed in a brand new pop-up theatre.

The musical is based around the character of Nomax, who has recently been dumped by his girlfriend. The appearance of five guys (all called Moe), who have some tuneful words of wisdom to impart, lifts his ailing spirits.

Directed by Peters, Five Guys Named Moe uses the music of Louis Jordan, the man known as “King of the Jukebox”. Soul, blues, gospel and early RnB combine in his gorgeous music performed live by an onstage band. Songs featured include Early In The Morning, Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My Baby, Choo Choo Ch’Boogie and also Saturday Night Fish Fry.

Architects designed the Marble Arch Theatre to whisk its audiences back to the Jazz bars of 1940s New Orleans. With a circular auditorium, the action takes place in and around the spectators. Ticket holders can make a night of it with pre-show drinks in the decadent 40s themed bar.

Andrew Wright creates the choreography for the show. He recently choreographed the acclaimed musical Half A Sixpence, performed at the Chichester Festival Theatre and the Noel Coward Theatre. He has also worked on other theatre productions, including Singin’ In The Rain and Guys And Dolls.

Five Guys Named Moe premiered in 1990 at the Theatre Royal Stratford East. It then transferred to the West End and Broadway.

Five Guys Named Moe runs at the Marble Arch Theatre from 29 August – 25 November 2017.
