Let The Good Times Roll!
From the moment Five Guys Named Moe burst onto the stage in a blaze of techincolour to redeem the decidly sepia-toned Nomax, this show sparkled!
Fabulus dancing, excellent singing, a wonderfu band, an amazing set which used every inch of the speigletent Five Guys is performed and a feel good factor rating of 10/10. The story is simple but very well told, with lots of humour and breathtaking split second timing which highighted just how well this cast work together.
And to top it all… We were able to join in with a couple of the hit numbers – and almost everyone in the audience joined in with the conga that led to the bar at the interval! And I’m delighted to reveal that I even did a few nifty dance steps with Little Moe!
