West End show to pop up in Marble Arch

Wed, 15/02/2017

Marble Arch is set to host a 9-month run of a West End show following a decision from Westminster City Council.

The council has approved proposals for part of the Marble Arch island to be used as a 650 seat temporary theatre from 7 April to 6 December.

The plans were submitted by Underbelly, who have a track record of producing successful pop up productions across the UK and will be working in partnership with the council to stage the show.

There will be up to 8 ticketed performances of Five Guys Named Moe each week. The Olivier award-winning musical is based on a book by Clarke Peters featuring lyrics and music by Louis Jordan.

Speaking at his first committee as Chairman, Westminster City Council Senior Planning Chairman, Richard Beddoe, welcomed the proposal.

He said: “The council is committed to bringing exciting events like this to Westminster. Five Guys Named Mo will be a huge draw for the area, generating a terrific atmosphere and giving local businesses a boost. Underbelly have been creating spectacular entertainment to the streets of our city for several years and we’re delighted to welcome them to Marble Arch for Five Guys Named Moe.”
