Pee-Wee Herman Show on Broadway

Last week I was in New York on business and went to see the Pee-Wee Herman Show, which just opened on Broadway. It is running on a limited engagement at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre (6th/Broadway). I've long been a fan of Pee-Wee, from his original show in LA to the Saturday morning TV 'Pee-Wee's Playhouse', to his big screen adventure, 'Pee-Wee's Big Adventure'. The Broadway show was really terrific, I truly enjoyed the entire evening. Admittedly I am still a kid at heart and thoroughly enjoyed screaming along whenever the secret word of the day was mentioned. The show re-creates the original Playhouse and cast of characters that made it so much FUN. Chairry, Mr Window, Conky, Globy, and people favorites like Jambi, Miss Yvonne, Mailman Mike and Cowboy Curtis too. It seamlessly weaves all the retro fun with the original flair of this highly creative 80's show.
Paul Reubens still has it- the look, the energy, the laugh and so much more. The full house of audience-goers to see this zany character indicates a thirst for something even greater. Perhaps another Pee-Wee movie in the near future? We'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, for the next 10 weeks fans can check out Pee-Wee and friends on Broadway and participate in a show that will leave you loving it so much "you'll want to marry it" (inside jokes for true fans). Go get your red bow-tie and prepare to have some FUN! Did someone say FUN? Aaarrrrrgggghhhh!
