"Nothing short of miraculous!" BOOM X opens Belfry's 2019-20 Season in Victoria
Victoria Review: "Jaw-droppingly impressive. Woe to those who endeavour to find fault in Rick Miller’s BOOM X... The very fact the wiry dynamo pulls off his one-man extravaganza at all (he plays 100-plus characters) is nothing short of miraculous." (Times Colonist)
Victoria Review: "An ideal show for music loving Gen-Xers. Miller’s energy on stage, dashing between downstage and the raised centre stage behind the curtains, belting out songs and handling every single piece of dialogue, left audience members breathless at times." (Monday Magazine)
4 years after BOOM opened The Belfry Theatre's 40th anniversary, Rick Miller and Kidoons are back with BOOM X, the GenX sequel that spans the years 1970-1995. It’s the second in a trilogy of solo multimedia performances, which collectively span 75 years of history, politics, culture, and technology on our planet. 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.
Tickets from Jul 29-Aug 18 2019.
Produced by Kidoons/WYRD Productions, in association with Theatre Calgary and The 20K Collective
