The new production of Five Guys Named Moe is being extended.

 

The show will now run in its custom-built theatre until 24th March 2018.

The brand new Marble Arch Theatre has been custom built for the production and is designed to take audiences to a 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.
