ALL FOR 'NOTHING': Preview performances of Bill Irwin's one-man realization of Samuel Beckett's "Texts for Nothing" last week drew Tom Waits and Keanu Reeves on separate nights to the Geary Theater, where the show opens tonight.

Reeves called the box office at the last minute for a single ticket and was every inch the down-to-earth, no-Hollywood-bullfunkie star after the show, graciously signing autographs and posing for snapshots for a few lucky audience members.

So is Keanu heading into a Beckett phase? I can hear it now: "I can't go on.

"I must go on. Wh-o-o-o-ah."
