"This is storytelling at its best!" BOOM X @The Grand in London ON

Posted on: Monday, February 6, 2023

"I’ve yet to see a performer on stage with such energy, focus, physicality and theatrical talent. Boom X is not traditional theatre, but it is pure and compelling entertainment that should not be missed." - London Free Press review

Rick Miller returns to one of Canada's most beautiful theatres, the Grand in London ON, with BOOM X (Part 2 of the BOOM Trilogy). Over the course of his career, the Grand has not only presented many of Miller's shows with Kidoons (MacHomer, Bigger Than Jesus, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea, and BOOM), but he's also directed the Grand's 2016 holiday production of The Wizard of Oz.

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.
