Description

Terminator Too: Judgment Play, from the director and cast of the revered Point Break LIVE! has been extended at San Francisco’s DNA Lounge until December 2014 by popular demand. In the updated lauded, hilarious and absurdist live-action, interactive stage production of the seminal 1991 classic science fiction action movie, Terminator 2, it’s a race against time as the Terminator joins forces with Sarah and John Connor in an effort to kidnap and convince Mark Zuckerberg he must destroy Facebook before it becomes self-aware and annihilates humanity after gathering and processing all of humanity's knowledge, selfies, food porn and cat videos.

For each show, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s lead role features a new and unrehearsed actor (selected from the audience), playing the ‘Terminator‘ with their lines read off cue-cards so as to capture Arnold’s Aryanesque Austrian-influenced acting awesomeness.

And with a production budget that spirals well into the hundreds of dollars, no expense is spared. The whole audience is transported back to the future as Human Resistance soldiers in the war against the machines and every revolutionary and stylized James Cameron action sequence and special effect is lovingly and, kind of, carefully recreated LIVE and in true interactive and immersive 3D. Flying mechanized fighting units versus human warrior battles will rage, death-defying midair helicopter-grappling stunts amaze, truck, motorcycle and car chases dazzle and Terminators clash in hand-to-hand, life-or-death battles in asylum hallways to elevators where the fate of the human race hangs in the balance before (spoiler alert) the enemy is vanquished in a boiling pit of molten metal.

Terminator Too: Judgment Play is as a healthy dose of ridiculous and debaucherous 80’s schtick as a Knight Rider marathon sponsored by Pop Rocks and Troll Dolls emceed by Marty McFly and backed with a Guns and Roses soundtrack. For two years Terminator Too: Judgment Play has been annihilating sold out New York City and Los Angeles audiences and slaying reviewers. T-Too has been called "Sharply funny!" by the NY Post; dubbed "EPIC!" and an “earnest and dumbly fun evening of theater” by Backstage; hailed as "The MUST SEE action movie remake" from TheJadedViewer.com; and, with supreme admiration, declared “A funhouse mirror image of the 1991 film” by TheCraptacular.com, stressing it’s “…amped up with extra gross-out humor and the kind of special effects you’d find at your local fundamentalist church’s Hell House.”
