Five Guys Named Moe Returns to London

Underbelly Productions have just  confirmed that a brand new 25th anniversary production of Clarke Peters' Olivier Award-winning and Tony-Award nominated musical, Five Guys Named Moe, will open in September 2017 in a new pop-up Spiegeltent theatre at  London's Marble Arch.

The soundtrack of soul, blues, gospel and early r 'n' b is performed on stage by a live band.

The Marble Arch Theatre is being designed specifically for the production and will transport the audience back to jazz bars of 1940s New Orleans. A unique, circular auditorium will ensure that the action take place all around the theatre with pre and post-performance drinks served in the theatre's authentic 1940s foyer cocktail bar.

Five Guys Named Moe will be directed by Clarke Peters with musical staging and choreography by Andrew Wright (Half a Sixpence, Singin' in the Rain, Guys and Dolls), inspired by Charles Augins' original choreography, set and costume design by takis (Side Show, In The Heights, Hairspray,
