Wednesday, January 18, 2023
In January of 2019, Kidoons’ Rick Miller followed up his hit show BOOM with BOOM X, the GenX sequel that spans the years 1970-1995. It’s the second in a trilogy of solo multimedia performances, which collectively span 75 years of history, politics, culture, and technology on our planet.
BOOM X picks up where BOOM left off, at Woodstock in August of ’69, and takes us all the way to 1995, when the internet began to dominate our lives.
Over the course of 100 minutes, Miller plays over 100 colourful characters from the days of disco, the oil crisis, Watergate, the Cold War, video games, punk rock, the (second) British Invasion, and more, in his own story of growing up and trying to navigate the tangled legacy of the Baby Boom.
