Clever, Quirky, Entertaining, Funny, Great staging

See it if you appreciate what can be done on a small stage, this one with a furnace filter decor! Boom is about the doom of a predict meteor plan.

Don't see it if you do not like loud "booms" or silliness, but you will be missing great acting by the museum docent and the others this energetic cast.

Original, Amusing, Quirky, Resonant, Ambitious

See it if you have environmental concerns. There are some wonderful comic awareness raising moments.
