BoomerMania lovingly lampoons the "ME" generation's journey from fifties romper roomers to beach party innocents to Summer of Lovers--on through the hazy crazy seventies, to the dizzy days of disco, and beyond. Through a chronologic series of sketches, complete with classic Boomer music, clever parody lyrics, full-on dances and multi media images, we visit four decades of Boomer history. It's more than a rollicking musical comedy. It's a celebratory journey through the life and times of America's most populus generation.
Whether you're a Baby Boomer, were raised by a Baby Boomer, raised a Baby Boomer, or have heard of a Baby Boomer--you'll love this joyous trip through Americana.

"This show is a party. A musical memory--each song is a shared memory, every lyric awakens a private recollection. After seeing it a third time, my face still hurt from laughing."
"A lot of fun. Very Clever. You don't want to miss this.. At times I felt like I was watching Saturday Night Live - or Laugh-In, other times through laughter and tears, I was reminded of an innocence that no longer exists."
"Hilarious. I loved it so much I saw it twice.
"A hilarious retro-musical. Clever parody lyrics that pop like a genie out of the bottle.
"BoomerMania ROCKS! It captures the audience from the first pre-show sound cues and never lets go. Filled with excellent performances and creative design, BoomerMania lovingly looks back and nostalgically tells its story through parody lyrics and vignettes that successfully captures the period's zeitgeist."
"One of the funniest musicals ever. Hilarious. You'll howl. It takes the audience on a musical journey through boom-dom."
"Screamingly funny nostalgic madness. Eye poppingly creative, hilariously written and directed. Loaded with life and world changning events. You'll laugh, reflect and relate."
