Critics have called it “spell-binding,” “dazzlingly original,” and “a can’t-miss theatrical experience.” Take an explosive journey through the music, culture, and politics that defined the Baby Boom generation. Along with a stunning array of images and video, Rick Miller’s tour-de-force solo performance brings to life over a hundred iconic politicians, musicians, and influential figures from 1945 to 1969.
BOOM had its first try-out run as part of our collaboration with the High Performance Rodeo two years ago. Since then, Rick has toured to every major centre in Canada and this has become one of the most popular new productions in the country. Join us for a victory lap, as Rick returns to show us his progress and dazzle us with his unmistakable, unique talents.
