More about BOOM
Picking up where BOOM left off at Woodstock in ’69, Rick time travels by way of multimedia up to 1995. Some classic BOOM characters reappear (Elvis gets fat, Lennon gets shot, and Reagan gets elected), but the focus moves from his mother to his own story. The production follows Generation X as they navigate the tangled legacy of the baby boom. More about BOOM X

The BOOM trilogy

Three explosive solo stage shows chronicling 75 years of history: BOOM, BOOM X, and BOOM YZ

From the creative team behind MacHomer and Bigger Than Jesus, comes the BOOM trilogy: a series of three explosive solo performances that collectively document the music, politics, and culture of the years 1945-2020. BOOM, the first show in the trilogy, covers the Baby Boom generation (1945-69), and was the most presented new play in Canada between 2015 and 2017. BOOM X, which premiered in 2019, moves on to Generation X, and documents the years 1970-1995. Finally, BOOM YZ, premiering in 2021, will bring us to the present day, spanning the years 1996-2020. All in all, the plays will cover 75 years of history, through unforgettable storytelling, award-winning multimedia, and the voices of over 300 influential figures and musicians. Each show is a mind-blowing experience, and a perfect way to reach audiences of all generations.
