The Basement Project is proud to present the South Florida premiere of Boom, an epic and intimate comedy by acclaimed San Francisco playwright Peter Sinn Nachtrieb directed by a theater veteran Oleg Kheyfets. Featuring original music composed and performed by members of the beloved electro-funk bank Afrobeta, the show runs Jan 7-31 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami.

“Uproariously funny. It’s literate, coarse, thoughtful, sweet, scabrously inappropriate, wracked by existential anxiety, and wonderfully humane…this is one end-of-the-world story that’s likely to leave you grinning from ear to ear.”

– Washington City Paper

A grad student’s personal ad lures a mysterious girl to his subterranean research lab under the pretense of an evening of “no strings attached” sex. But when a global catastrophe strikes, their date takes on evolutionary significance. An epic and intimate comedy that spans over billions of years.

“At first glans “Boom” suggests a “Twilight Zone” rewritten as a sitcom… It winds up speaking, quietly and piquantly, to our enduring fascination with and need for myths about the beginning of life as well as its end.”
– New York Times

“A Grandly wacked-out apocalypse fantasy, one of those charmed evenings.”
-Washington Post
