Horizon Stage 19-20 Season Performer: BOOM staring Rick Miller
Multi-Disciplinary Theatre

A Kidoons and WYRD Production
Written, Directed, and Performed by Rick Miller

Written, directed, and performed by Rick Miller, BOOMExternal is an explosive 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, and a hit in Canada, the U.S., and France.

BOOM chronologically documents the period from the first atomic bomb in 1945 all the way to the Apollo 11 landing on the moon in 1969. These two iconic moments span one of the most tumultuous times in modern history, as a generation with incredible influence came of age alongside advances in technology and communication. Rick Miller performs all the characters and 25 moment-defining songs, in a stunningly staged production that blends cutting-edge multimedia, and tour-de-force storytelling. Experience the global events as they unfold: the Cold War, McCarthyism, Beatlemania, JFK, MLK, Vietnam... The various stories spiral into the “The Summer of Love’’, and BOOM ends as it began: with the birth of a new generation. One of only 4 Canadian dates this season!
