A new production of the musical Five Guys Named Moe will be opening this September at a pop-up theatre in Marble Arch, London.
The production was first seen at the Theatre Royal Stratford in 1990 before it transferred to the West End for four years.
Five Guys Named Moe has an initial booking period from 28th August until 25th November. The official opening night will be 14th September. Tickets are now on sale.
The show follows the story of Louis Jordan, known as ‘King of the Jukebox’, who was an American musician, songwriter and band leader, popular in the 1930s to 1950s.
The musical features some of Jordan’s greatest hits, including Early In The Morning, Is You Is or Is You Ain’t My Baby, Choo Choo Ch’Boogie and Saturday Night Fish Fry.
The show will include a soundtrack of soul, blues, gospel, and early R’n’B, which will be performed on stage by a live band.
The Marble Arch Theatre
The Marble Arch Theatre is being designed specifically for the production and aims to transport the audience back to the 1940s in New Orleans.
The theatre will feature a circular auditorium to allow the action to take place all around the theatre.
The foyer will also be set up to represent a 1940s cocktail bar, where guests can enjoy a post-performance beverage.
