Exclusive: Full casting announced for Five Guys Named Moe
Clarke Peters' musical will open in a new venue in Marble Arch
Full casting has been announced for the revival of Clarke Peters' musical Five Guys Named Moe in London this summer.
The musical is directed by Peters and will open in a new pop-up venue called the Marble Arch Theatre designed specifically for the production.
It is about Nomax, whose girlfriend leaves him and is left with no money, and is comforted by the music of five jazz singers, each named Moe.
Edward Baruwa will play Nomax, and the Moes will be played by Ian Carlyle (Four-Eyed Moe), Dex Lee (Know Moe), Idriss Kargbo (Little Moe), Timothy Martin (Big Moe) and Emile Ruddock (Eat Moe).
The musical features jazz hits including "Early In The Morning", "Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby", "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie" and "Saturday Night Fish Fry".
Five Guys Named Moe opens at the Marble Arch Theatre on 14 September, with previews from 29 August.
