Voted Best Theatre Company in Birmingham magazine’s 2010 Best of B'ham survey and winner of the Birmingham News Best Live Theater in 2009, Red Mountain Theatre Company transports audiences into compelling worlds of theatrical fantasy. Five Guys Named Moe tells the tale of Nomax, down and out in classic blues fashion, abandoned by his girlfriend and the contents of his wallet. Trying to console himself in the bleary hours before dawn, he is surprised when five guys named Moe emerge from his 1930s-esque radio and entertain the misery out of him with songs, cheers, jeers, and a recipe for duct-tape pie. Celebrating the music of Louis Jordan, one of the most successful African American musicians of the 20th century, the Moes croon such hits as “Let the Good Times Roll,” “Caldonia,” and “Messy Bessy.”
