The Music, Culture, and Politics of Generation X
Welcome to the age of Pac-Man, Star Wars and MTV! Rick Miller follows up his hit show BOOM with the Toronto premiere of BOOM X, the Gen X stand-alone sequel that explores the years 1970–1995. It’s the second in Miller’s trilogy of solo multimedia shows, which collectively span 75 years of music, culture, politics, and technology on our planet.

BOOM X takes us from Woodstock ’69 to 1995, when the internet began to dominate our lives. Over 100 minutes, Miller gives voice to more than 100 colourful characters from the days of punk, disco, the FLQ crisis, the Cold War, and more. After performing BOOM X on three continents, one of Canada’s most celebrated international theatre artists returns home to Toronto with this astounding spectacle that has blown away audiences of all generations.
