Five Guys Named Moe
  • London Fringe

A musical by Clarke Peters, featuring Louis Jordan's greatest hits presented by Underbelly in association with Cameron Mackintosh. A major new production of the hit West End and Broadway musical, Five Guys Named Moe features the toe-tapping and irresistible hits of jazz legend Louis Jordan, including; Early In The Morning, Choo Choo Ch'Boogie and Saturday Night Fish Fry, plus many more performed on stage by a live band. First seen at the Theatre Royal Stratford East in 1990, from where it subsequently transferred to the West End winning the Olivier award for Best Entertainment, this musical tells the story of Nomax. Newly single and broke, he finds solace in the Five Guys Named Moe (Big Moe, Four Eyed Moe, Eat Moe, No Moe and Little Moe), who emerge to rouse him from his misfortunes with a whole lot of soul, music and infectious energy!

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
