Given that properties like The Lion King and Spider-Man have been turned into Broadway shows, it’s probably not surprising that there’s a theater adaptation of everybody’s favorite 1992 surf thriller Point Break. But the genius part of Point Break Live!, playing Friday and Saturday at downtown’s Charlie O’s, is that there’s no Johnny Utah in the cast. The role made famous by Keanu “I Am an F-B-I Agent” Reeves is instead played by an audience member selected at random at every show and who reads his lines from a cue card. The results, I imagine, are probably fairly close to the original.
