Actor Gary Busey made a special appearance at the Dragonfly on Friday night for the May 22 performance of Point Break Live!, the wildly popular punk-rock stage adaptation of the 1991 action flick Point Break that starred Busey as seasoned FBI agent and general badass, Angelo Pappas, opposite Keanu Reeves' Johnny Utah.
During the performance Busey clearly enjoyed himself, cheering and heckling from the front row, wearing his “survival kit” rain poncho, and even picking up a cap gun and Super Soaker to join the cast members for the show's final shoot-out. I joined the cast backstage after the show for what was an epic night in Point Break Live! history.

You can catch Point Break Live! every Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Dragonfly, 6510 Santa Monica Blvd., L.A., CA 90038, (323) 466-6111
