Theatre Calgary Presents
January 15 – February 9, 2019
Written, Directed and Performed by Rick Miller
Rick Miller returns to Theatre Calgary after his sold out run of BOOM in 2016 with the world premiere of BOOM X! Picking up where BOOM left off at Woodstock in ’69, Rick time travels by way of multimedia up to 1995. Some classic BOOM characters reappear (Elvis gets fat, Lennon gets shot, and Reagan gets elected), but the focus moves from his mother to his own story. The 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. 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.- Stafford Arima
Max Bell Theatre
Ideal for: Performances and recitals
Accessibility: Theatre seating includes wheelchair accessible seats
Included: Fully customizable lighting and A/V options
Located on the south-east corner of Arts Commons, the traditional style of the Max Bell theatre breathes elegance, and is home to one of Calgary’s foremost theatre companies, Theatre Calgary.
A proscenium theatre, Max Bell Theatre has wrap-around seating on three levels and is versatile in scope through its adjustable seating and staging features. Moveable hinged box seats on both sides of the auditorium near the stage can be angled toward centre stage, left flat against the side walls or positioned somewhere in between creating a proscenium opening which can be adjusted from 35 to 75 feet in width. In 2016, Max Bell Theatre received a major face-lift, with all of its seats replaced, and a new paint job throughout. The audio systems in the theatre were upgraded from analog, to state-of-the-art digital in 2014, and today it remains at the top of industry standard for theatres in Canada.
