“Miller’s best solo show to date – with a brilliant design concept that allows him to use his inimitable vocal talents to tell this story in a way that no one else could.” Globe and Mail
NAC English Theatre Presentation
a Kidoons and WYRD Production
A cutting-edge kaleidoscope of images, music and video, BOOM explodes onto the stage, capturing the fascinating turbulence of the postwar Baby Boom generation. Award-winning writer, director and legendary solo-performer Rick Miller brings to life dozens of politicians, writers, activists and entertainers, effortlessly recreating each one. Covering the years 1945 to 1969, he embodies the music, media, culture and history that defined a generation. BOOM is a mind-blowing experience.
BOOM arrives at the NAC as part an extensive cross-Canada tour.
