An explosive solo performance that documents the music, culture, and politics that shaped the Baby Boom generation (1945-1969). BOOM takes us through 25 turbulent years and gives voice to influential politicians, activists, and musicians. BOOM chronologically documents a historical period stretching from that first ‘boom’ of the Atomic Bomb in 1945 all the way to the Apollo 11 landing on the Moon in 1969. Blending cutting-edge multimedia, unforgettable characters and tour-de-force storytelling in a stunningly staged production, BOOM allows you to experience the global events as they unfold: the Cold War, McCarthyism, Beatlemania, Trudeaumania, JFK, MLK, Mao, Vietnam…The various stories spiral into the “The Summer of Love” and BOOM ends as it began: with a new generation born into a new world order. It’s a mind-blowing experience for audiences of all generations, and with 320 performances already, the most presented new touring show in Canada!
