Pee-wee Herman on Broadway

The Pee-wee Herman Show, starring and created by Paul Reubens, arrived on Broadway in fall 2010, playing its first performance on October 26, 2010, and opening to rave reviews on November 11, 2010, at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.

Radio Mouse Entertainment was on the producing team with lead producer Scott Sanders Productions, and fellow co-producers Allan Gordon, Adam Gordon, Elan McAllister, Roy Miller, Scott Zeilinger Productions and Carol Fineman.

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

The Pee-wee Herman Show 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 design team for The Pee-wee Herman Show includes David Korins (scenic design), Ann Closs-Farley (costume design), Jeff Croiter (lighting design), M.L. Dogg (sound design), Jimmy Cuomo (design consultant), Jake Pinholster (projection design) and Ve Neill (make-up design).
