Rick Miller returns to Theatre Calgary after his sold out run of BOOM in 2016 with the world premiere of BOOM XPicking 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

THEATRE CALGARY – THE SCARLET LETTER

Image result for the scarlet letter theater calgary

February 26 – March 23 | Max Bell Theatre

It is 1642 and Hester Prynne has been branded an adulterer by her Puritan village and forced to wear the titular scarlet letter as repentance. However, in this modern adaptation, Hester is unashamed of her actions and proudly subverts society’s rigid standards put upon women to be virtuous and good. Today, as we continue to grapple with these expectations, Hester’s story resonates all the more.

This adaptation of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic novel is a breathtaking piece of playwriting. I love Academy Award nominee Phyllis Nagy’s interpretation of this universal tale of Hester Prynne and her red letter “A.” As female morality is sadly still questioned in certain parts of the world, I find this play to be strikingly relevant. – Stafford Arima

ALBERTA BALLET – THE FIDDLE AND THE DRUM

Joni Mitchell’s The Fiddle & the Drum, Alberta Ballet

May 1-4 | Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium

Celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the world premiere of Joni Mitchell’s The Fiddle and the Drum, a storied collaboration that launched what has become Alberta Ballet’s hallmark concept—its signature portrait ballets.

The fruit of an intense 2-year labour of love between famed Canadian singer-songwriter, Joni Mitchell, and Choreographer Jean Grand-Maître, witness what the songstress describes as “the most satisfying project of her career”.  Joni Mitchell’s The Fiddle and the Drum gives passionate expression to Mitchell’s lifelong concern with the issues of conflict, violence and humanity’s continuing devastation of the environment. Alberta Ballet dancers depict Mitchell’s most famous characters from her lyrics and artwork, at times in counterpoint, abstractly illustrating our fragile hope and potential for the creation of beauty.

Experience this exquisite ballet, and understand why it launched the most important era yet for Alberta Ballet.
