Clarke Peters has become internationally famous through his role as Lester Freamon in the enormously successful TV series, The Wire. Casting includes Ashley Campbell as Little Moe, Chris Colquhoun as Big Moe, Carlton Connell as Four Eyed Moe, Paul Hazel as Eat Moe and Horace Oliver as No Moe.
This 20th anniversary production of the smash hit West End and Broadway musical follows broke and newly single Nomax as Five Guys Named Moe (Big Moe, Four-Eyed Moe, Eat Moe, No Moe, and Little Moe) emerge from his 1930s-style radio in an attempt to cajole and comfort him. Blasting out hit songs from Jazz legend Louis Jordan including 'Early In The Morning', 'Choo, Choo, Ch'Boogie' and 'Saturday Night Fish Fry', this great 1930s composer and saxophonist brought a popular new slant to jazz that paved the way for the rock-and-roll of the 1950s.
