The latest entry in our #FirstNightTakeover series sees Perry O'Bree visiting the brand new purpose-built Marble Arch Theatre for the opening night (14 September 2017) of the new revival of FIVE GUYS NAMED MOE. Featuring photo booths, interval conga lines, Elaine Paige, original cast members, new cast members, Matt Lucas, after-show parties, Cameron Mackintosh, specially made cocktails and more - there really ain't no party like a Perry-O'Bree-meets-Five-Guys-Named-Moe party!
First seen at the Theatre Royal Stratford East, Five Guys Named Moe ran for four years in the West End, winning the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment, before premiering on Broadway. Writer and original star Clarke Peters now directs the show, which is choreographed by double Olivier Award-nominee Andrew Wright, and designed in-the-round by takis.
Nomax is down on his luck. Newly single and broke, he drinks his sorrows away. But in a wild night that he'll never forget, featuring the toe-tapping, irresistible hits of jazz legend Louis Jordan, including Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby, Early In The Morning, Choo Choo Ch'Boogie, Saturday Night Fish Fry, plus many more performed live on stage by a world class jazz band, Five Guys Named Moe - Big Moe, Little Moe, Eat Moe, Know Moe and Four-Eyed Moe - are on hand to help him party his way back to the straight and narrow.
