Five Guys Named Moe Tickets
Marble Arch Theatre
This show is now closed.
It's time to be transported back to the colourful, noisy jazz bars of 1940s New Orleans, complete with a feast of irresistible jazz hits by the legendary Louis Jordan. Is You Is or Is You Ain’t My Baby, Early In The Morning, Choo Choo Ch'Boogie, Saturday Night Fish Fry, and a host more classic tunes are performed live on stage by an exceptionally talented band. It's the fabulous, glitzy Clarke Peters' musical Five Guys Named Moe, and it's produced to perfection by Underbelly Productions.
Clarke Peters is an incredibly talented creative type, an American actor, singer, writer and director who is probably best known over here for his role as detective Lester Freamon in the smash hit HBO TV series, The Wire. He also wrote this excellent musical play. It originally opened at Theatre Royal Stratford East way back in 1990, making such a big impact that it soon transferred to the West End where it played for four years before moving over the Atlantic in 1992 to thrill Broadway. Now it's back in London.
This time around the show was supposed to appear at a theatre on the Victoria Embankment, but sadly the original venue was dropped when locals living in the area objected. Thank goodness for the brand new Marble Arch Theatre, an innovative pop-up that has been designed with this production specifically in mind, which means it's absolutely perfect for the job. The venue has been inspired by the interior décor, look, feel and personality of 1940s New Orleans jazz bars, and the action spills out into the street around the venue before and afterwards.
The production is directed by Peters himself. By all accounts he's delighted about the whole thing, especially since the event marks his masterpiece's quarter century anniversary, and he has actually performed in it himself in the past. This fresh, re-imagined version is set to light up theatreland for a limited run from early autumn to late November 2017, a famously dynamic and energetic experience. The brilliant choreography is by Andrew Wright and the set and costumes come from Takis.
If you'd like to enjoy a uniquely exciting and inspirational musical extravaganza of an Olivier award winner this autumn, Five Guys is the perfect choice.

Foot tapping, bouncing, funny show presented by very talented actors/musicians
Thoroughly enjoyable show. Having already seen this first time around I particularly enjoyed the layout of the theatre you really feel like you are in a Jazz club. The moving stage allows all aspects of the show to be enjoyed. Fantastic and cheap at the price compared to other musicals I have seen.

Great show with very talented cast and lots of fun
Great show with wonderful cast and music. The energy and vitality all the actors brought to the stage was amazing. The stage setting was excellent and the use of the outer stage, which had moving parts was really well thought out. The band was very good and the mix of music and songs worked really well. Lots of fun things happen too. Won't tell you, you have to go and see it. Know you'll love it.

Sightly underpowered revival
I felt rather underwhelmed by this revival. The band is great, but is hidden behind a curtain for most of the show. The pop-up venue (like a Big Top) is imaginative and part of the experience. But the singing is weak, possibly because headset mics and other technology makes it possible (though inadvisable) for less powerful voices to 'do'. A few non-Jordan songs are introduced, which jar somewhat. The story is non-existent, but you probably weren't expecting one. At the end of the day it's just a musical, and perhaps I should not have expected more.

With the Almeida’s acclaimed production of Hamlet about to transfer to the West End there’s never been a better time for first timers to discover this fascinating play.
Some people are intimidated by the prospect of Shakespeare’s dense text and this production is nearly four hours long, but don’t be. There’s seldom been a production that’s clearer and easier to follow than this one plus you get to see one of our best young actors, Andrew Scott (Moriarty in TVs Sherlock) at his best.
