Coming off a critically acclaimed a three-week run in New Orleans, and another at the Hudson Mainstage Theatre in Los Angeles . . . Keith Moon: The Real Me comes to 3Below Theaters & Lounge for six performances only.

Keith Moon: The Real Me (the story of the legendary drummer for The Who) explodes on the stage with the turmoil and excitement of the wildest drummer in rock and roll history. A living legend during his lifetime, Keith Moon still stands as the pinnacle of rock-star extremism—both 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 to (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, his 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, and his struggle to escape the ever-looming Rock ‘n’ Roll crash landing.

What the critics are saying:
“A tour de force performance...Keith Moon: The Real Me is much more than a concert recreation...[it] channel’s Moon’s persona…Berry is incandescent as Moon…musicology research is spot on…Berry’s acting as close as can be to a real historical figure…not just for rock enthusiasts…a well-crafted dramatic biography that anyone who follows pop culture can enjoy.” Steve Murray, For All Events

“In ‘Keith Moon: The Real Me,’ Berry becomes both Keith moons” the rock-star drummer and the tragic figure. Berry’s performance—as a writer, actor and drummer—is a tour de force.” Hank Schlinger, Culture Spot Los Angeles
