Point Break Live! Smash Hit, Full-Immersion Stage Production Resumes Los Angeles Performances!
Above, the cast of Point Break LIVE!, now resuming Saturday evening performances at the Dragonfly in Los Angeles.
October 28, 2008, CA: “Point Break LIVE!,” the absurdist stage adaptation of the 1992 Keanu Reeves/Patrick Swayze extreme-sports blockbuster, returns by popular demand to the Dragonfly Bar in Los Angeles, every Saturday night, beginning November 8, 2008, at 8 p.m.
“Point Break LIVE!” tells the story of former College football star, Johnny Utah, in pursuit of the surfing, bank robbing, skydiving, bare-hand-fighting adrenaline-junkie-cum-Zen-master Bodhi Sattva. Since it's Seattle debut in 2003, “Point Break LIVE!” has ‘rawked' sell-out crowds, performing to sold out shows and rave reviews, in Seattle, Minneapolis, and New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco – the latter receiving a City Proclamation from Mayor Gavin Newsom.
Described by Australia's PopMag.com, as “a cross between reality TV, a play, and all-time classic film “Point Break,” every show features a new unrehearsed actor (selected from the audience), playing ‘Johnny Utah‘ with the lines read off cue-cards so as to capture Keanu Reeves raw acting talent.”
“Point Break LIVE!” features armed robbery, big-wave surfing, car chases, explosions, no less than two extended skydiving sequences and an indoor monsoon. This "action" play offers a true cathartic experience, putting you in the water with the surfers, throwing you out the door of an airplane, and robbing you at gunpoint. Add in the hotness factor - surfer dudes and female stunt doubles - and you have a night of unrivaled exciting live theater entertainment.

The audience doesn't just watch Point Break LIVE!; they are in it. "Survival Kits™", at a mere $1 each, contain items to help audience members participate in "the ultimate ride," and include a plastic emergency poncho to protect the viewers from the action that literally spills forth from the stage.
There's so much action spilling forth from the stage, it has to be videoed and played through a real-time live feed on TV monitors set to the side of the stage. Via the "Keanu Kam™," the audience can keep track of the volunteer Keanu when the action bursts out onto the street! At the end of the performance, the "volunteer Keanu," is handed a VHS tape of his or her performance.
