A major revival of the hit musical Five Guys Named Moe is proposed at Marble Arch, in a new pop-up West end theatre.
In association with Cameron Mackintosh, producers Underbelly plan to provide an immersive and immediate performance, featuring the songs of pioneering American jazz musician and songwriter Louis Jordan, created by Clarke Peters. Using the stunning Spiegeltent venue, a first class creative team will build an entirely new cultural offer at Marble Arch.
Five Guys Named Moe has its original home at the Theatre Royal Stratford East, before moving to the Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue in 1990, where it ran for five years before moving to the Albery Theatre for one year. Currently showing in Underbelly’s Edinburgh’s Christmas, you can view the trailer here.
If the application is successful, the provisional date for the pop-up theatre’s build is April 2017, with previews from 1 May and shows for 30 weeks until 26 November.
The maximum audience capacity is set at 651 people. Five Guys will offer an eight-show week, Monday to Saturday, with matinees on Wednesday and Saturday.
Local businesses and residents will be invited to tour the venue and to see a show before the press night opening. To support the application (16/11546/FULL), click here.
