Astounding musicianship and riveting dramatic presentation that looks into the tortured soul that was the brilliant Keith Moon. Funny, sad, and exciting, often at the same time. Mick Berry is an extraordinarily talented performer, and his recreation of the Who’s music is staggeringly good. Made me appreciate drumming in ways I had never imagined and provided some touching insight into Moon’s psyche.
What I didn't like
Earplugs handed out before the show were necessary in some parts due to the smallish size of the theater. Some of the dialogue in the middle of the drum solos was difficult to hear, but this only happened on a few occasions. The problem is that Moon’s thunderous style, combined with the small size of the theater, makes it hard to control the relative volume of the two audio sources. In a larger venue, this probably wouldn’t be as much of a problem. If “Keith” could drum softer during his talking, that would solve the issue, but that wouldn’t be Moon!
Regardless of this minor and sporadic situation, you do not want to miss this remarkable performance!
My overall impression
Unique and memorable musical/theatrical experience!
