The Pee-Wee Herman Taking Over Broadway

The Pee-Wee Herman Taking Over Broadway

With the sucess that the show had at it's limited engagement at Club Nokia in LA this past winter, the show is heading to the main stage now. Creator-writer-actor Paul Reubens will again play the bow-tied man-child — the role that made him famous.

The production — inspired by earlier stage incarnations and the cult-hit Saturday-morning TV series that overflowed with subversive humor, delighting kids and adults alike — will begin a limited six-week, 48-performance engagement Oct. 26 at the newly christened Stephen Sondheim Theatre. Alex Timbers, who helmed the Los Angeles run, will again direct. The Broadway run was announced on May 20. Tickets go on sale June 1 at Telecharge.com.

The Broadway production, officially opening Nov. 11, will feature original music by Jay Cotton and puppetry by Basil Twist. Scott Sanders produces. Performances will play to Dec. 5.


Based on Reubens' 1981 stage production, The Pee-wee Herman Show, with new elements from the CBS show "Pee-wee's Playhouse," is written by Paul Reubens and Bill Steinkellner, with additional material by John Paragon. Directed by Alex Timbers (Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson), The Pee-wee Herman Show will feature music by Jay Cotton and the work of puppetry artist Basil Twist.

The Pee-wee Herman Show, according to production notes, "reunites the one-and-only Pee-wee Herman (Paul Reubens) with many of the original Playhouse cast of characters – including Miss Yvonne, Cowboy Curtis, Pterri the Pterodactyl, Jambi the Genie, and Chairry – for an all new celebration of sophisticated silliness. An eye-popping 90 minutes of subversive humor and childlike wonder, The Pee-wee Herman Show charts a day in the life of our bow-tied hero, one of the most inspired comic personas of our time."

The complete Broadway cast will be announced soon.
