Five Guys Named Moe

Five Guys Named Moe
A jazzy, sexy tribute to legendary composer and saxophonist Louis Jordan.

An exuberant tribute to the music of rhythm and blues pioneer and alto saxophonist Louis Jordan, Five Guys Named Moe is an international sensation. Initially produced in London's West End by the legendary Cameron Mackintosh, this exhilarating, all-embracing theatrical experience moved to Broadway in 1992 and was nominated for 2 Tony Awards.

Five Guys Named Moe is about our hero, Nomax - he's broke, his love Lorraine, left him, and he's listening to the radio at 5 o'clock in the morning. Out of the radio, Five Guys Named Moe appear. Set to Jordan's iconic rhythm and blues/jazz score, the Moes encourage Nomax to turn his life around and tell Lorraine he loves her.

Five Guys Named Moe is the perfect small cast show for communities with talented singers looking to feature African-American actors. A thorough MTI Study Guide provides cross-cultural enrichment for productions interested in learning more about Jordan, his career, and the era in which he wrote. The recognizable and enticing score appeals to a variety of audiences, and the uproarious audience participation will have spectators leaping out of their seats to join the celebration!
