January 26 - February 27, 2022


Book by Clarke Peters Music and Lyrics by Louis Jordan

Directed and Choreographed by Brittney Griffin Associate Choreographer Darius Barnes Music Direction by Dexter Pettaway His woman left him, he’s broke, and it’s almost five a.m. But don’t worry about our hero. All he needs is the right music—and the right guys—to get him through. Enter five guys named Moe, stepping out through his radio to cajole, comfort and jazz him with dozens of whimsical hit songs from the extraordinary 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 two Tony Awards.

“[The show is driven by] fast pacing and high stakes. What matters most here is that the material is respected, the audience is nurtured, [and] warmth comes in great waves.” Chicgaco Tribune

"There ain't no party like a Five Guys party", the Moes sing at one point, and it's absolutely true. A night of total fun.” What's On Stage
