The musical follows broke and newly single Nomax (Peters) as Five Guys Named Moe (Big Moe, Four-Eyed Moe, Eat Moe, No Moe, and Little Moe) emerge from his 1930s-style radio in an attempt to cajole and comfort him. The music comes courtesy of jazz legend Louis Jordan, with hits including "Early In The Morning," "Choo, Choo, Ch'Boogie" and "Saturday Night Fish Fry." The company will also feature Anthony Boggess-Glover, Tommie Harper, Carlton Leake, Chioke Coreathers, and Donald Callier.
Carson is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Kyle Barker on the FOX series Living Single. In addition, he has provided the voice for Mace Windu in the animated series Star Wars: Clone Wars since 2005. Among his stage credits are regional productions of Smokey Joe's Café and The Colored Museum.
