Underbelly Productions has today confirmed the new production of Clarke Peters Olivier Award-winning and Tony-Award nominated musical, Five Guys Named Moe, will extend its run at The Marble Arch Theatre until Saturday24TH March 2018.

Five Guys Named Moeis playing at the brand new Marble Arch Theatre which has been custom built for the production. The venue is designed to take audiences to an 1940s all-swinging New Orleans club, complete with festooned courtyard, bespoke cocktail bar, smoky corners and band-stand as a centrepiece. Performed in the round for the first time, theatregoers will be able to take their seats at the cabaret tables in the Funky Butt Club and have drinks served directly to their tables for an up-close and personal musical experience all around them.

First seen at the Theatre Royal Stratford East in 1990, Cameron Mackintosh brought it to the West End where it played for four years, subsequently playing on Broadway and around the world. Clarke Peters’ (The Wire, Treme, Person of Interest, Porgy and Bess, The Ice Man Cometh)career defining musical features the irresistible hits of trailblazing ‘King of the Jukebox’ Louis Jordan, including Early In The MorningIs You Is or Is You Ain’t My Baby, Choo Choo Ch’Boogie and Saturday Night Fish Fry. The soundtrack of soul, blues, gospel and early r ‘n’ b is performed live on stage by The Funky Butt Club Band.

Cameron Mackintosh, Associate Producer said: “I couldn’t be happier that everyone wants more Moe and that the joint will continue to jump for several more months.”

Charlie Wood and Ed Bartlam, Directors, Underbelly said: “There really ain’t no party like a Five Guys party and that’s exactly what audiences have been finding out; they’ve been on their feet every night of Five Guys Named Moe.  Everyone loves the party atmosphere in the brand new Marble Arch Theatre – our incredible purpose-built New Orleans style venue. Clarke Peters has brought his own show thrillingly to life in this brand new production and we couldn’t be more delighted to announce that we’re extending the run to 24th March 2018.”

Cllr Robert Davis MBE, DL, Deputy Leader of Westminster City Council and Cabinet Member for Business, Culture and Heritage said: “Westminster City Council is delighted that the public have responded so positively to this brand new production of Five Guys Named Moe at the stunning Marble Arch theatre. Extending the run of this internationally acclaimed musical will allow more residents, businesses and visitors to enjoy a fantastic evening of top class entertainment in a world-class, iconic location and we look forward to welcoming them to the venue over the coming months”
