The Black Repertory Theatre of Kansas City has announced the cast for FIVE GUYS NAMED MOE with a book by Clarke Peters and featuring the music of rhythm and blues pioneer and alto saxophonist, Louis Jordan.
Directed by Executive Artistic Director Damron R. Armstrong, and Assistant Directed by Shon Ruffin, the production features Christopher Barksdale-Burns (No Moe), Francisco Javier Villegas (Little Moe), Nathaniel Rasson (Four-eyed Moe), Rodney Thompson (Eat Moe) and Douglass Walker as (Big Moe).
According to the press release, Armstrong chose this piece to close the inaugural season because it speaks to exactly what The Black Repertory Theatre of Kansas City is all about — shining a spotlight on contributions made by African-Americans.
