“They pull someone from the audience, they throw water at you, they give you cue cards, and all that good fun stuff. You can BE Johnny Utah.”- KEANAU REEVES talks about Point Break LIVE! on the Dan Patrick Show
“an expression of imagination in the highest form. I had a good time with it and I love the fact that it was being done.”
– GARY BUSEY explained to the Wall Street Journal

POINT BREAK LIVE! takes the audience along for the ride as FBI agent Johnny Utah is abused by the bureau, hazed by the LA surf community, and bromanced by one truly radical sonofabitch — wave-catching guru Bodhisattva. In a “low-brow brilliant!” twist according to New York Magazine, the role of Utah is performed by an audience member selected nightly in an impromptu Are U Keanu? contest. To infiltrate the violent and insular world of the LA surf scene, former audience member Special Agent John Utah must learn to surf, sky dive and dominate at beach football. His lines are provided to him via cue card via a production assistant who is also his stunt double. No shit.
Sometimes credited as the first-ever “reality-play”, the audience as the movie’s extras are caught in guns-a-blazing bank robberies, bloodied from senseless violence and soaked in a devastating Australian hurricane. No worries…a POINT BREAK LIVE! SURVIVAL KIT (poncho, earplugs, Bodhisattva $ etc.) is included with each ticket purchase! The life you save may be your own!
