Five Guys Named Moe
In celebration of Black History Month, we pay tribute to Louis Jordan, the 1940s rhythm-and-blues singer, songwriter, and bandleader, whose new approach to jazz paved the way for rock and roll in the 1950s.
Nomax is single, broke and drinking his sorrows away when five guys named Moe - Big Moe, Little Moe, Eat Moe, Know Moe and Four-Eyed Moe – emerge from his radio to help him straighten out, ease his broken heart, and sing and dance his way to love!
This joyful, jazzy show is the winner of London’s coveted Lawrence Olivier award and was originally produced by Cameron Mackintosh, (Phantom of The Opera, Les Miserables, Miss Saigon, Cats). Set to Jordan's iconic rhythm and blues/jazz score, including, “Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My Baby”, “Choo Choo Ch’Boogie” and, “Saturday Night Fish Fry.”
