Over 25 years after its theatrical debut, the feel-good musical Five Guys Named Moe returns to theatreland this summer. Based on the timeless classics of jazz legend Louis Jordan, the plot centres on protagonist Nomax, who is down on his luck having recently split up from his girlfriend. In an attempt to lift his mood, Nomax one day turns on the radio and is transported to a new world where five guys offer him counsel on life and heartbreak taught through the spirited lyricism and music of Jordan. I recall Five Guys Named Moe being one of the first West End musicals I had the pleasure of seeing as a young woman, and it was sensational. I look forward to seeing the modern revival. The production will be directed by Clarke Peters with further cast announcements coming up in the next few weeks. The show will run from 29th Aug to – 25th November at the Marble Arch Theatre, which will be transformed to look like a 1940s New Orleans jazz bar replete with a cocktail bar and jazz band.
