This was never about the money, this was about us against the system. That system that kills the human spirit. We stand for something. We are here to show those guys that are inching their way on the freeways in their metal coffins that the human sprit is still alive.
Delightfully low brow content creatively adapted for the stage, Point Break Live is Klosterman-approved for those with overdeveloped senses of what these days passes as “irony.” If you don’t find something to laugh about at Point Break Live, well, you might as well go home and crap in your hands and rub it on your face.
The current run has three days left in April. Though we ran in to “Papas” in Chinatown this weekend and he said it may go longer. Check out Theatermania for updates.
Tip: This is really a perfect date for those Gen Xers who grew up when Swayze could actually open a movie. This means anyone who had crushes on Ethen Hawke and Winona. Anyone who remembers rocking out to Soul Asylum. Anyone who masturbated thinking about Lori Petty. Think ages between 30 and 40.
Oh yeah, the best part is that each show an audience member is selected to play Keanu Johnny-Utah Reeves. The cue-card read part is spot on for a Keanu performance.
Cost: $20 per ticket .
When: Thur. April 26 at 8:00 pm.
Fri. April 27 at 8:00 pm
Sat. April 28 at 7:00 and 10:00 pm
Where: Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center, 107 Suffolk Street. F/J/M/Z to Delancey-Essex
Tip: Arrive at least 20 minutes early for the best seating. They have a bar on premises with a small lounge that shows the film.
Tip: Get together for drinks a couple hours before and actually watch Point Break. This will seriously help with some of the inside jokes in the live show. Especially the homoeroticism.
Tip: There are a limited amount of meatball sandwhiches served during the show. $3. Might be nice to share one. There’s also one intermission.
Tip: Afterward keep the cheese alive at nearby “”irony” bar Welcome to the Johnsons. Old videogames, PBR and Electric Light Orchestra in the jukebox. 123 Rivington Street
Tip: Completely unrelated. Tex Mex bar Johnny Utah’s will be opening in Manhattan in a couple weeks. And, yes, there will be a mechanical Bull.
This is stimulating, but I’m out of here.
