Boom X

Boom X

“Stunning… A marvellous mashup of media, verbatim theatre, jukebox musical and autobiographical confession” - Globe & Mail

Victoria, BC...From July 30 - August 18, 2019, the Belfry Theatre will present Rick Miller’s multimedia masterpiece BOOM X. Written, directed and performed by Rick Miller, BOOM X is produced by Kidoons and Wyrd Productions, in association with Theatre Calgary and the 20K Collective.

“A one-man show master… A multimedia showcase of Rick Miller’s incredibly unique ability to bring all this pop culture to life” — CBC News

Rick Miller’s BOOM struck a chord with Belfry audiences in the summer of 2015. Picking up where BOOM left off – at Woodstock in 1969 – BOOM X tackles the music, culture and politics of Generation X. 

“Mesmerizing… high energy magic carpet ride with a real genie for a tour guide” - Calgary Herald

Surrounded by stunning visuals, Rick plays more than 100 famous people – musicians, celebrities, politicians – from the days of disco, the oil crisis, Watergate, the Cold War, video games, punk rock, the (second) British Invasion - in his own story of growing up and trying to navigate the tangled legacy of the Baby Boom.

“Astonishing… BOOM X is a miracle of timing and technology” - Montreal Gazette

Rick Miller is a Toronto-based Dora and Gemini award-winning writer / director / performer / musician / educator who has worked in five languages on five continents, and who Entertainment Weekly called “one of the 100 most creative people alive today”
