Point Break LIVE! the stage version of the Keanu/Swayze Classic

As those of you who are regular readers of my blog know, I have a certain affinity for Keanu Reeves films. So bad, yet so entertaining! I particularly enjoy his cult classic Point Break (see my movie review on it: http://spidgetales.blogspot.com/2005/09/keanu-reeves-best-bad-actor.html ), where Patrick Swayze put on the performance of his lifetime, Gary Busey put on his ultimate caricature of self performance, and Keanu Reeves put on his ultimate wooden performance. As if the movie itself is not enough, I recently learned that their is a stage version of this classic.

At Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn, from February 10 through February 25, "Point Break LIVE!, the abusrdist stage adaptation of the 1992 Keanu Reeves extreme-sport blockbuster" will be showing for an exclusive one month engagement. A real stage actor will be playing the part of Patrick Swayze's character Bodhi Sattva, and, presumable other actors will play the parts of the ensemble. However, the lead role, the character of Johnny Utah, played in the movie by Keanu Reeves, will be played by a member of the audience selected at random each night, and he will perform his part by reading off cue cards.
