The irresistible music of Louis Jordan, composer and saxophonist, is the focus of this revival from Underbelly and Cameron Mackintosh. First seen in 1990, Five Guys Named Moe is an exuberant tribute to the father of R&B, complete with jazzy tunes, a heartwarming story and plenty of funky vibes and just a little bit of audience participation!
Bereft after his partner Lorraine leaves him, Nomax is passing the wee hours listening the radio, finding solace in the 1930's jazz music of the Five Guys Named Moe. Soulful and jubilant, the Guys (Big Moe, Four Eyed Moe, Eat Moe, Know Moe and Little Moe) begin to transcend the radio and speak directly him. Perhaps with their help he'll be able to turn his life around, emerge from his funk and win back the girl!
