Returning to Theatre Calgary after 2016’s sold out run of BOOM, Rick Miller takes a look at Generation X in his newest work—BOOM X.

Picking up where BOOM left off, at Woodstock in 1969, Miller continues his travels through time by way of multimedia. This production follows Generation X as they navigate the tangled legacy of the baby boom.

“I invited Rick Miller to return to Calgary so he could premiere his ‘Act 2’ of the immensely popular BOOM,” says Theatre Calgary’s Artistic Director Stafford Arima in a statement. “Thankfully, he accepted my invitation and has created a brand-new piece entitled BOOM X—a multimedia, one-man show that takes us into the fascinating world of Generation X.”

BOOM X runs January 15 to February 9, 2019 at the Max Bell Theatre, Arts Commons (240 9th Ave. SE).
