"BOOM X is a Miracle of Timing and Technology" (Mtl. Gazette review)
"Miller astounds audiences with his highly versatile talent, impressive musicality, and entertaining impersonations." (
"BOOM X is a multimedia marvel of the stage that transcends age and era... We eagerly await the final and third instalment." (Montreal Theatre Hub)
"A Sensationally Terrific Production for the Eyes and the Ears" (Onstage Blog)
"A hugely entertaining show, a real barn burner, a crowd pleaser, and you don’t need to have seen the original BOOM to get into it.” (Richard Burnett, CJAD)
"Part hilarious nostalgia and part poignant reflection on the growing pains of the generation following the Boomers. It is fun, rousing, and thoughtful." (
"TOUR DE FORCE... Rick Miller nous livre une rétrospective riche et divertissante des événements qui ont secoué et défini la génération X...Spectacle technologique au concept unique où une simple image vaut des milliers de mots, BOOM X constitue un bijou du multimédia." (
"BREATHTAKING... a nonstop, whirling dervish of a historical panorama of 25 years that shaped modern history and the people and events that shaped it" (Stuart Nulman's Grapevine)
"BRILLIANT... simultaneously mesmerising and monumentally relevant" (OrcaSound)
"MASTERPIECE...the special effects will blow you away, so will his impersonations, quick wit and rapid costume changes. Everything is so cleverly done." (The Suburban)
"Rick Miller mixes memoir, uncanny vocal impersonation, flashy scenography and a dash of the jukebox musical in his latest one-man show, BOOM X" (Pat Donnelly, PatStagePage)
"Miller transporte les spectateurs dans un véritable voyage dans le temps...assisté de projections multimédias et d'astuces personnelles pour rendre le tout encore plus éclatant." (

Rick Miller's new solo show has opened in 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!).
