BOOM X in Montreal, Feb 14-Mar 10
Rick Miller's new solo show comes home to Montreal, playing at The Segal Centre from Feb 14-Mar 10 2019. Set in Town of Mount Royal, QC, between the years 1970-1995 - from the FLQ crisis to the 2nd Quebec Referendum - Miller plays 100 characters to bring to life the music, culture and politics of "Generation X". It's a multimedia spectacle for audiences of all generations, and a love-letter to the city of Montreal (and to the ill-fated Montreal Expos!).
preview article in The Surbuban
"BOOM X is a frenetic, rollicking run through a fascinating time period... " (Calgary Herald)
"Saturated with instantly recognizable classic-rock – and punk, prog-rock, hip-hop and reggae – media imagery and political touchstones" (Globe & Mail)
"It's part educational, it's part entertaining, part nostalgia... It's like watching your life's greatest hits." (CBC Radio)
“The maelstrom of sound, light and projections along with the precision of Miller’s impressions make for a spectacle that rivals anything competing for your attention online.” (The YYScene)
