Keith Moon: The Real Me feat Mick Berry
Keith Moon: The Real Me feat Mick Berry
Keith Moon The Real Me explodes on the stage with the turmoil and excitement of the wildest drummer in rock and roll. A living legend during his lifetime, Keith Moon still stands as the pinnacle of rock-star extremism--in life and music. The play explores the mind of Keith Moon, as he attempts to save himself from the unbearable burden of living up (or down) to his self-created legend of Moon the Loon. As Keith attempts to save himself, he takes the audience on a journey through his early struggles, joining The Who, and their rise as one of the world's greatest rock bands. By the show’s end, the audience intimately knows the man behind the myth--his acute vulnerability and insecurity, revealed in his struggle to save himself from a self-induced downfall.

Directed by Nancy Carlin. Musical Director Frank Simes (musical director for The Who).
