Keith Moon: The Real Me
Written and Performed by Mick Berry
Songs by Pete Townshend
Directed by Nancy Carlin
Music Directed by Frank Simes
"Last chance to live and die with Kieth Moon: The Who drummer died 39 years ago today of an accidental overdose from a prescription drum Moon had been taking to combat alcoholism. He was one of the best rock drummers in history, but his restless need for crazy, destructive antics seem to feed on itself. His is a fascinating story and its on stage in the solo show, written and performed by Mick Berry. This weekend marks the end of its Marin County run."
Robert McMullen's Top Ten List...the Mercury EYE 9/7/17
THE STORY OF THE ORIGINAL "BAD BOY" DRUMMER OF ROCK AND ROLL, KEITH MOON OF THE WHO.
"Moon the Loon" still stands as the pinnacle of rock-star extremism--both in life and music. "Keith Moon: The Real Me"
explodes onto the stage with all the turmoil and excitement of the wildest drummer in rock and roll.
Now running through September 10th at the Leiberman Theatre, 397 Miller Avenue in Mill Valley.
What The Critics Are Saying
"A must for Who fans! The light and the dark side of the Moon are revealed in this exploration of the wild and tragic life of Keith Moon the legendary drummer for the Who. Mick brings Moon to life through words and some amazing drumming on Who classics...Jeff Wessman, August 31, 2017
"If you're into Keith Moon and/or the Who, you really, really want to go to this. If you aren't into either, go to the show anyway and you will be.It's amazing what Mick has done and you will leave blown away." John Mini
""Great show. Mick Berry does an outstanding job getting the audience into the mindset of Keith Moon." Robert Caves
August 17, 2017
"A tour de force performance that brought the audience to its feet on multiple occasions. Berry is incandescent as Moon. Berry's acting is as close as can be to a real historical figure...much more than a concert... recreational, well crafted dramatic biography that anyone who follows pop culture can enjoy.
Steve Murray, For All Events
"Mick Berry doesn't just tell the story of the madcap drummer of The Who; he also plays Moon's drum parts on some of the band's biggest hits...When he picks up those drumsticks, he's on fire"
Sam Hurwitt - Marin Independent Journal
"Berry is a powerful, skilled drummer, and recreates (with almost perfect accuracy) Moon's brilliant drumming on hits like Baba O'Riley, My Generation, and Won't Get Fooled Again."
