Written and performed by Rick Miller.
BOOM is the explosive solo performance that documents the music, culture and politics that shaped the Baby Boomer 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 theatrical experience for audiences of all generations. BOOM chronologically documents a historical period stretching from that first ‘boom’ of the Atomic Bomb in 1945 all the way to the Apollo 11 landing the first human beings on the Moon in 1969.
KDOONS and WYRD Productions blend cutting-edge multimedia, unforgettable characters and tour-de-force storytelling in a stunningly staged production. BOOM allows you to experience the global events as they unfold: the Cold War, McCarthyism, Beatlemania, Trudeaumania, JFK, MLK, Mao, Vietnam… The various stories spiral into the “The Summer of Love”, and BOOM ends as it began: with a new generation born into a new world order.
Suitable for ages 14 and up.
