"Point Break LIVE! turns out to be one wild ride. It's impossible not 
to get swept up in it's glorious chaos." - SF WEEKLY

"'Point Break LIVE!' shamelessly rides the gnarly breakers of travesty 
until viewers wipe out on the shoals of helpless laughter."  LA TIMES

"In a nutshell: About the most dead-on dose of hilarity to ever be on 
stage."  LA.COM

"Can only be described as all-encompassing, wet, interactive, loud, 
extreme, and altogether awesome."  LA2DAY.COM

"The fact that the movie is a surf saga and doesn't necessarily lend 
itself to an adaptation for the stage is what makes the show all the 
more ridiculous and a must-see."  SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER

"What the play lacked in big Hollywood budget, it more than made up 
for in good, old fashioned slapstick comedy and deliciously awkward 
moments."  Santa Cruz Sentinel

What is Point Break LIVE!?
Point Break LIVE! is the absurdist stage adaptation of the 1992 Keanu 
Reeves/Patrick Swayze extreme-sports blockbuster that tells the story 
of former College football star, Johnny Utah ,in pursuit of the 
surfing, bankrobbing, skydiving, bare-hand-fighting adrenaline-junkie-
cum-Zen-master Bodhi Sattva.

What makes Point Break LIVE! so exciting?
Point Break LIVE! features armed robbery, big-wave surfing, car 
chases, explosions, and no less than two extended skydiving 
sequences.   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 live 
theater that rivals anything by Samuel Beckett in terms of pure 
excitement and energy.

What makes Point Break LIVE! cooler, funnier, and crazier than any 
other show?
The starring role of  Johnny Utah  is selected  from the audience each 
night,  and reads their entire script off of cue-cards . This method  
manages to capture the rawness of a Keanu Reeves performance even from 
those who generally think themselves incapable of acting.   The fun 
starts immediately with the "screen test" wherein the volunteer Keanus 
(usually 4-10 men and women vie for the role) go through a grueling 
audition process. The part is then cast via applaus-o-meter. The show 
is different every time which is why so many people come back three, 
four and even five times to see it.

What's in the Survival Kits?
Point Break LIVE! is interactive to the extreme.  There is an indoor 
monsoon scene and lot's of water and fake blood flying around so the 
audience members are advised to purchase a Survival Kit for $1 which 
includes a protective poncho. It also includes fake money as it is 
likely that audience members will be robbed at gunpoint by some mask-
wearing actors.

Warning: besides monsoons and fake blood, there is gunfire and 
violence. This show is not for the squeamish or faint of heart. And it 
is messy.... so please leave the designer outfits at home! Seriously!
