The Pee-Wee Herman Show in NYC

Pee-Wee Herman (Paul Reubens) is back and he’s brought along lots of his friends from the Playhouse. If you were a kid growing up in the 80’s (or a kid at heart) and remember watching “Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure” and waking up Saturday mornings for “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse,” then this show is for you. All the characters from the Playhouse are back including Jambi, Cowboy Curtis, Miss Yvonne, Chairry, Conky and the King of Cartoons. I was lucky to get tickets to the first NYC show on October 26 at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre and sat in the center of the balcony which had a great view. There was a huge curtain in front of the stage and as soon as Pee-Wee came out to start the show, the crowd went wild. When the curtains opened to reveal the Playhouse, the crowd cheered even crazier. It was insane! It was great to see Lynne Marie Stewart reprise the role of Miss Yvonne and John Paragon is back as the genie, Jambi. Mekalekahi Meka Hiney Ho! The show is well written, funny and there are even jokes for the adults snuck in there too. Don’t you worry, there is a secret word and don’t forget when you hear it…scream real loud! I don’t want to give much of the plot away, but It’s just another day in the Playhouse for Pee-Wee who wishes one day to be able to fly. There are plenty of laughs and one of my favorite scenes happens when the lights go out. You will love this play so much you’ll want to marry it! Hurry and get your tickets, the show ends on January 2, 2011. Welcome back Pee-Wee. We missed you!
