Full casting has been announced for the London revival of Clarke Peters’ Olivier Award-winning musical Five Guys Named Moe.

Directed by Clarke Peters, the song and dance musical will have choreography by Andrew Wright, the choreographer behind Chichester Festival Theatre hits Half A Sixpence, Guys and Dolls, and Singin’ In The Rain.
The show will play at the purposed built Marble Arch theatre, which will be reminiscent of a 1940s New Orleans Jazz club, complete with cabaret table seating and drinks table service.
The musical features 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.
