His wife left him, he’s broke and it’s almost five in the morning. But don’t worry about our hero. All he needs is good music – and good guys – to get by. Enter five guys named Moe, stepping off his radio to cuddle, comfort and jazz him up with dozens of whimsical hit songs from the extraordinary Louis Jordan. FIVE GUYS NAMED MOE is an international sensation. Originally produced in London’s West End by the legendary Cameron Mackintosh, this exhilarating and all-encompassing theatrical experience moved to Broadway in 1992 and was nominated for two Tony Awards.
