Five Guys Named Moe party on to March 2018

By Robin Johnson Published 8 November 2017

The new production of Clarke Peters’ Olivier Award-winning and Tony-Award nominated musical, Five Guys Named Moe, has extended its run at the custom-built Marble Arch Theatre into March 2018.

Five Guys Named Moe’s exuberant mix of infectious energy, catchy tunes and atmospheric surroundings has seen it extend its run until Saturday 24 March 2018 due to popular demand, the show’s second extension at the bespoke venue.

The Marble Arch Theatre is designed to transport audiences to a 1940s all-swinging New Orleans club, complete with festooned courtyard, bespoke cocktail bar, smoky corners and band-stand as a centrepiece. Performed in the round for the first time, theatregoers will be able to take their seats at the cabaret tables in the Funky Butt Club and have drinks served directly to their tables for an up-close and personal musical experience all around them.

Charlie Wood and Ed Bartlam, Directors, Underbelly said of the news: “There really ain’t no party like a Five Guys party and that’s exactly what audiences have been finding out; they’ve been on their feet every night of Five Guys Named Moe.”

“Everyone loves the party atmosphere in the brand new Marble Arch Theatre – our incredible purpose-built New Orleans style venue.”

Peters’ (The Wire, Porgy And Bess) beloved musical features the irresistible hits of trailblazing ‘King of the Jukebox’ Louis Jordan, 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 soundtrack of soul, blues, gospel and early r ‘n’ b is performed live on stage by The Funky Butt Club Band.

First seen at the Theatre Royal Stratford East in 1990, Cameron Mackintosh first brought Five Guys Named Moe to the West End, where it played for four years, subsequently playing on Broadway and around the world. Now, this new revival continues to send audiences grinning all the way home.
