Alhambra Theatre and Dining presents ‘5 Guys Names Moe’

It’s a little after Spring Break and time for you to enjoy some quality entertainment.  Saxophonist Louis Jordan created a new slant on jazz in the 1940’s that paved the way for rock and roll in the 1950s.  Nominated for a 1992 Best Musical Tony® Award and winner of the 1991 Laurence Oliver Award for Best Entertainment, “Five Guys Named Moe brings Jordan’s music to life through the eyes of main character Nomax, at the Alhambra Theatre & Dining.

Nomax, whose girlfriend has left him and is without money, finds “Big Moe,” “Four-Eyed Moe,” “Eat Moe,” “No Moe,” and “Little Moe” emerging from his radio to comfort him.  The result is two hours of lively, funky music that the LA Times called, “one of the more entertaining experiences available to humanity.”

About “Five Guys Named Moe”: An exuberant tribute to the music of rhythm and blues pioneer and alto saxophonist,
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.Chef

“Five Guys Named Moe” is mostly about Nomax – he's broke, his lovely Lorraine left him and he's listening to the radio at 5 o’clock in the morning.  Out of the radio, five guys named Moe appear.  Set to Jordan's iconic rhythm and blues/jazz score, the Moes encourage Nomax to turn his life around and tell Lorraine that he loves her.  The recognizable and enticing score appeals to a variety of audiences, and the uproarious audience participation will have spectators leaping out of their seats to join the celebration.  It’s not too late to get your tickets!
