Written, directed and performed by Rick Miller, BOOM! is an explosive new solo performance that documents the music, culture and politics that shaped the Baby Boom generation (1945-1969).

BOOM! takes us through 25 turbulent years, and gives voice to over 100 influential politicians, activists and musicians. It’s a mind-blowing experience for audiences of all generations.

BOOM! chronologically documents a historical period stretching from that for “Boom” in 1945 all the way to the explosion of Apollo 11 bringing the first human beings to the moon. Those two iconic moments span 25 of the most tumultuous years in modern history, fuelled by a generation of children who wielded incredible influence due to their numbers and to the advances of technology and communication.

In the “Boom” generation, politics and culture merged like never before – and perhaps never again.

Through cutting-edge multimedia, unforgettable characters and tour-de-force storytelling, BOOM! allows you to experience the global events as they unfold: the Cold War, McCarthyism, Beatlemania, Truedeaumania, JFK, MLK, Mao, Vietnam… The various stories spiral into the “Summer of Love”, and BOOM! ends as it began: with a new generation born into a new world order. Presented by KDOONS and WYRD Productions.

“Theatre this dynamic, special, insightful and innovative doesn’t come around often enough for you to miss it.” – Calgary Sun
