PBL in NYC

posted by on February 28 at 9:49 AM

Jamie Hook (co-founder of and sometime director of the Northwest Film Forum) has taken Point Break Live! (which he co-wrote and co-directed with NWFF’s Jaime Keeling back in 2003) and is running it in New York. (I hope Hook is sending Keeling her royalty checks.)

The stage adaptation of the Keanu Reeves movie (where a new Keanu is picked from the audience each night with the premise: “anybody can be as vacant as Keanu”) opened in a Manhattan theater in January. It has been successful, and is in an open-ended run. Manhattan loves it. And what did The Stranger think of Point Break Live! back in 2003? Um, not so much.

From the Stranger Suggests section of the regrets issue of 2003:

‘Point Break Live!’
(THEATER)
Zac Pennington endorsed the “world premiere theatrical adaptation” of the 1991 movie Point Break sight unseen. Rotating, unrehearsed Keanus were intended to send up the part-Hawaiian movie star’s infamous lack of affect, but the rest of the cast, having presumably rehearsed, had no such excuse.
