Thomas Blake, director of Los Angeles' long running hit Point Break Live!, returns to New York with the World Premiere of TERMINATOR TOO, JUDGMENT PLAY. Previews of this new interactive spoof of the classic 1991 Schwarzenegger/James Cameron action blockbuster Terminator 2 begin June 23 at downtown's Santos Party. Opening night is slated for July 14 (Bastille Day).
TERMINATOR TOO, JUDGMENT PLAY transports audiences back to the good old days of 1991, when your biggest concern was whether your Slap Bracelet matched your Reebok Pumps. Here, the destiny of the world depends on future leader John Connor being protected by a steroid-laden cyborg hero from the future. Get ready for an action-adventure of epic proportions, complete with Super-Soakers and He-Man action figures. Be dazzled by James Cameron’s revolutionary $94 million special effects -- all recreated LIVE… with next to no budget at all!
For each show, the role of THE TERMINATOR will be chosen from the audience, by the audience -- but don’t worry, all of Arnold’s complex, important dialogue is provided via cue cards. Cast will include Christi Waldon and George Spielvogal, both fan favorites of Point Break Live! The production team will include additional writing from Jim Cunningham, formerly of South Park, and Peter Sheik as original score composer. Additional casting and production staff will be announced shortly.
