A recent episode of BoingBoing.net’s Boing Boing TV introduced me to one of the most amazing things I’ve ever heard, since the last amazing thing I’d ever heard. Basically, every weekend, a bunch of actors get together and reenact the Keanu/Swayze classic Point Break, live on-stage. Did I just blow your mind? Even cooler, they hold live auditions each night and choose one audience member to play Keanu Reeves’ classic “Johnny Utah” character for that night’s performance.
If you want to get in on the action, you can check the Point Break Live! MySpace page. They’re currently performing on Saturdays and Sundays, in downtown Los Angeles. And for those of you shaking your head at the angry Johnny Utah wannabe in the above video, fear not – he’s this guy. Now, if you’re oblivious to Point Break‘s relevance to the modern MSTie, well, you’re obviously not aware of this. And Swayze, man. It’s got freakin’ Swayze.
Mike, you want in on this? Seriously, we all know you’d make a great Johnny Utah. (Erik, could you make sure Mike sees this? The thought of him attending and auditioning is just too incredible to let go.)
