This February, stream a musical favorite from Court’s archives!

The Sun-Times called Court’s production “pure, unadulterated theatrical fun!”  A lively musical tribute to the hit songs of saxophonist and songwriter Louis Jordan, Five Guys Named Moe introduces Nomax: a broke, newly single guy singing the blues late into the night. Suddenly, five unexpected friends—Big Moe, Four-Eyed Moe, Eat Moe, No Moe, and Little Moe—emerge from his radio to help ease his broken heart. Pioneering musician Louis Jordan’s new approach to jazz paved the way for rock and roll in the 1950s.

Streaming tickets will go on sale in late January for digital viewing February 4 – 28, 2021. All 2020/21 season subscribers will have access to the stream at no additional charge. Sign up for Court’s email list to be the first to know when streaming tickets are available.
