BOOM X in Jan-Feb 2023

Posted on: Monday, January 16, 2023

2023 will kick off with 2 big runs of Rick Miller's BOOM X (Part 2 of the BOOM Trilogy), which looks at the music, culture, and politics of Generation X.

BOOM (Part 1) was in Kamloops less than a year ago, so it's exciting to be back again so soon with the sequel. As for the Grand in London, it's been a while! BOOM played during it's world premiere run of 200 shows in 2015-2016, and we were scheduled to bring BOOM X in 2020 - but we all know what happened then.

Preview article in KamloopsThisWeek.

Written, directed and performed by Rick Miller, BOOM X picks up where BOOM left off, at Woodstock in August of ‘69, and takes us all the way to 1995, when the internet began to dominate our lives. Over the course of 100 minutes, Miller plays over 100 colourful characters from the days of disco, the oil crisis, Watergate, the Cold War, video games, punk rock, the (second) British Invasion, and more.
