 Five Guys Named Moe on Valentine’s Day

Tickets Available Now


KOHLER, Wis. – January 8, 2014 – Kohler Foundation continues the tradition of bringing the highest-quality musical theater to the area with the high-energy revue Five Guys Named Moe on Friday, February 14. Tickets to the 8:00PM show are just $35 for adults and $18 for students. Special dining and lodging offers in the Village of Kohler are available to ticket holders during the special weekend.

 Five Guys Named Moe debuted in London’s West End in 1990 and won two Laurence Olivier Awards before making the journey across the pond to Broadway in 1992. The musical, which was also nominated for two Tony Awards, tells the story of down-on-his-luck Nomax and the eponymous Five Guys Named Moe who jump right out of his 1930s-style radio one night. They cajole, wheedle, and comfort him with the whimsical hit songs of Louis Jordan, one of the most beloved songwriting talents of the twentieth century.

With more than fifty top ten singles on the rhythm and blues charts, Louis Jordan was a great composer, bandleader and saxophonist who brought a popular new slant to jazz, paved the way for the rock-and-roll of the 1950's, and collaborated with the likes of Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald. His music creates a toe-tapping and hand-clapping soundtrack to the hilarious, heart-warming story written by Clarke Peters.

 The final performance of the Distinguished Guest Series’ 70th Season  on April 5 will be world-renowned violinist Itzhak Perlman in concert with Rohan DeSilva on piano.

 Tickets are available on the Kohler Foundation’s website or by calling the Foundation office: or 920-458-1972.  Show will be performed at the Kohler Memorial Theatre, 260 School St., Kohler, Wisconsin.

 The Kohler Foundation is a non-profit, private foundation that supports education, arts and preservation initiatives in Wisconsin.
