says, "it's impossible not to get swept up in Point Break Live!
's glorious chaos" and LA.com
calls it "the most dead-on dose of hilarity to ever be on stage!"
Honored with a City Proclamation
from Mayor Gavin Newsom in 2008, Point Break Live!
is a spoof of the 1991 blockbuster classic starring Patrick Swayze as Bodhi, the Zen-surfing leader of a gang of bank robbing adrenaline junkies called the Ex-Presidents, and Keanu Reeves as Johnny Utah, an ex-college football star turned undercover FBI Agent.
The show features armed robbery, big-wave surfing, car chases, explosions, no less than two extended skydiving sequences and an indoor monsoon.
But the best part? YOU CAN BE KEANU!!!
That's right -- at each performance the lead role (Johnny Utah) is played by an unrehearsed volunteer chosen directly from the crowd and voted for by the rest of the audience. One of the many reason that Variety raved it as "Hilarious!" Righteous BRAH!
Point Break Live!
is not your typical theater experience (thank god). In fact, it might be the best stage adaptation of an action movie in the history of the world. The interaction literally spills out into the crowd as the cast robs banks, rips waves, catches tubes, blows shit up, skydives with loaded guns, and even chows down on hot meatball subs. "Utah! Get me two!"
Leave your finery at home and don't forget to buy a survival kit. You will get wet, you will be robbed at gunpoint, you will be spattered with fake blood and possibly even thrown on the floor by belligerent bank robbers or molested by over-sexed surfers, you might even get hit with a meatball sandwich. The audience is involved in the action to such a degree that HustlerofCulture.com
proclaimed, "Point Break Live
is the Rocky Horror Picture Show
for our generation."
