Five guys Named Moe

His woman left him, he's broke, and it's almost five o'clock in the mornin'. But don't worry about our hero Nomax. Out of his '30s-style radio pop "FIVE GUYS NAMED MOE", who cajole, wheedle, comfort, and jazz him with the whimsical hit songs of Louis Jordan, one of the most beloved songwriting talents of the twentieth century.


John O'Keefe's...

The play's brilliance — its ability to juggle three worlds with such dexterity that they look like one. The "catastrophe" of the second line refers, in a single word, to the murder of Hamlet's father, to the burning of the Reichstag and to 9/11. Every historical reference emerges as a breezy allegory for another.
