Point Break Live

Live in Minneapolis? Wanna see a theatrical adaptation of one of the worst movies ever made?

What's awesome is how easy it is to resemble Patrick Swayze. All you really need is a ratty bleach-blonde surfer wig and a weathered face. Even better, the producers of the play don't feel that any acting ability whatsoever is required to play the Keanu Reeves character, so a random audience member will be chosen for the role during each performance. Learn more if you want.

It could only be better if it were a musical.

The producers have posted the following for theater goers:

WARNING: It is mandatory that YOU watch POINT BREAK: THE MOVIE as much as possible before attending POINT BREAK: THE PLAY. This will greatly improve your experience....and the play? Whoa! (Had to put in the obligatory Keanu "whoa")

But Patrick Swayze looks like a really pretty middle-aged Asian woman now. Check out's archives... Oh, Patrick. Oh, Patrick.

Here's the link for those who want a "what face does he have now" fix on Patrick Swayze:

I hope this goes on tour so I can see it in Jersey. There's nothing quite like patrick swayze in a baja poncho.

I love that some random Joe is going to play Keanu's part every time. I'm not one of his fans.

Hi Sweetie!!! I'm just lurking here. Is that supposed to be Patrick Swayze? It looks more like that crocodile guy to me. What's his name??? Steve something or other??? The guy that dangled his baby in front of JAWS!!!

This is great news! It means I'm one step closer to realizing my dream of producing "Howard the Duck: the Musical"

Broadway, here I come.

Hiya Dan. Lurker here. Is that supposed to be Patrick Swayze? Look more like that croc guy to me. What's his name??? Steve?

Howard the Duck! Anyone else disturbed by the love scene between Lea & Howard?

Oh Hotbabe!! Did you just admit to acutally seeing Howard the Duck? Or are you just pretending you saw it because you've seen all those clips on VH1's "I Love The Eighties?"

That is just the actor playing Swayze (Aka Brody) in the live version of Point Break. Me may look like the baby dangling croc hunter, but I think he's got better things to do.

A lurker called me sweetie.

Genius. Wish I could get up there to see it. Then again, the fear of getting randomly picked to play Keanu will probably keep me away.

Poor Keanu and his robotic acting style. Did he and Kevin Costner and Cybill Shepard all go to the same acting school?

I predict a blockbuster success a la The Real Brady Bunch. Next stop; Broadway.

Nice blog, Sweetie.

Because I'm sure you wanted a review.
