Five Guys Named Moe ran for four-and-a-half years in the West End, closed and re-opened within a matter of weeks, such was the demand for tickets. Meanwhile, Clarke Peters (right), its creator, hasn't spent all that time lying around counting his percentage. Unforgettable, the Nat King Cole Story is his latest venture and it's in preview at the Garrick Theatre. Peters's velvet-voiced ability to mimic the cool crooner of Let There Be Love, Mona Lisa and the definitive version of Stardust, should encourage fans across the country to book a trip to the capital.
