Trip Down Memory Lane

We saw BOOM at the Manitoba Theatre Centre on Monday night. It was a real trip down memory lane as we were whisked through the 1950s and 1960s by gifted solo performer Rick Miller. boom rick miller

Boom is short for Baby Boomer and Baby Boomers like us were definitely in the majority of the seats at the theatre.  Using video, a clever set, props and many different voices the multi-talented Miller told the personal story of his family as he explored the cultural and historical events that shaped his parents’ childhood and young adulthood. 

 It reminded me of several blog posts I’ve done on my personal connection to those same decades.  Check out Duck and Cover and Where Were You
