The Asian premiere of BOOM in Taiwan!

Posted on: Friday, April 2, 2021

National Taichung Theater is hosting the Asian premiere of BOOM on April 24-25, 2021. After a pandemic-induced hiatus, Rick Miller's solo show BOOM is back, and he and his Kidoons team are now quarantining in Taiwan, in preparation for the performances, which will be in English with Chinese subtitles.

From the NTT website: "A solo performance by the multitalented Rick Miller, BOOM is an explosive journey spanning 25 years (1945-1969) of the Baby Boomer generation. The play follows the stories of three main characters, all portrayed by Miller: Maddie, who grew up under the shadows of alcoholism and domestic violence; Rudi, who grew up in Allied-occupied Austria devastated by the war; and Laurence, a draft dodger and victim of racial abuse. As their stories converge in Toronto in the late 1960s, Miller takes us through 100 different characters in 100 minutes, a time-lapse of the turbulence that was the post-War era. The play ends on the day when Rick Miller was conceived: the day of the first manned moon landing."

BOOM is part 1 of the BOOM trilogy, which includes BOOM X (now on tour) and BOOM YZ (premiering in 2021).
