break

Theatre "Point Break LIVE!, the absurdist stage adaptation of the 1992 Keanu Reeves extreme-sports blockbuster, surfs into Galapagos for an exclusive one-month engagement. [...] Best of all, the starring role of Keanu will be selected at random from the audience each night, and will read their entire script off of cue-cards!" -- Dana Bushman

Oddly enough when I was at the Edinburgh Festival, oh so long ago, I saw a production of Arthur Miller's The Crucible which sounds just like this. The actor playing Reverend John Hale fell ill and the director, who obviously hadn't had time to learn the script himself had to fill in the part himself. They valiantly solidiered on and even with his stilted, sometimes wierd line readings it wasn't completely awful. The man playing Proctor was amazingly effective.
