Will Durst’s BoomeRaging: from LSD to OMG, is an uproarious comedic tribute to the joys, achievements, frustrations, and looming doom of the Baby Boom Generation.
In this rollicking 85-minute monologue, Durst explains why his chronologically gifted brothers and sisters should continue to refuse to grow old in the face of gravity no matter how many times they forget their password retrieval question. It’s what happens when acid flashbacks meet dementia. A celebration of the maturation of the Boomer Nation: culminating in an extra, added special treat – the Meaning of Life.
Ably assisted by his genially acerbic wit and trusty overhead projector, Durst explores the Boomer revolutions, evolutions and still vibrant role in today’s youth obsessed society (which we invented, for crum’s sake). He shamelessly strokes egos and pats hands, encouraging the Flower Power Generation to persevere through segments entitled The Psychedelic Colonoscopy, Still Doing Drugs, Only Now There’s a Co-Pay, and From the Summer of Love to the Winter of Our Incontinence. It’s funny. It’s smart. Clean and uplifting, even.
