A lively musical tribute to the hit songs of saxophonist and songwriter Louis Jordan, Five Guys Named Moe introduces Nomax: a broke, newly single guy singing the blues late into the night. Suddenly, five unexpected friends—Big Moe, Four-Eyed Moe, Eat Moe, No Moe, and Little Moe—emerge from his radio to help ease his broken heart. Pioneering musician Louis Jordan’s new approach to jazz paved the way for rock and roll in the 1950s. Five Guys Named Moe is directed by Resident Artist Ron OJ Parson with Associate Director Felicia P. Fields.
