Rick Miller (Bigger Than Jesus, MacHomer) returns with an explosive new solo performance documenting the music, culture and politics that shaped a generation. BOOM takes us through 25 turbulent years, giving voice to over a hundred influential politicians, activists and musicians – a mind-blowing experience for audiences of all generations.

Why I Chose This Play – Memories are powerful and emotional things, so I am convinced that this piece – examining as it does the music, events and people of the baby boom generation – will resonate profoundly with everyone in our audience. Add the fact that it brings the talented Mr. Miller back to the Belfry, and it’s impossible to resist! MS
BOOM is two hours in length with one 15-minute intermission.
