Featured Reviews For The Pee-wee Herman Show


The Pee-Wee Herman Show - The Hollywood Reporter
Alex Timbers (also represented on Broadway with the historical mockumusical Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) strikes the right overstimulated note in his direction, darting from one bit of business to the next without worrying too much about the flimsy connective thread. Lag time is plugged with shameless filler like an extended balloon gag or an amusing 1950s Coronet Instructional Film on good manners, redubbed with incongruous sound effects.

'The Pee-wee Herman Show' is back - on Broadway - Newsday
The secret word, we're told early on, is "fun." If knowing that makes you want to yell and cheer - and use your outside voice - you are probably already primed to return to the otherworldly inside joke now called "The Pee-Wee Herman Show."

Back in the days of Henry Miller, it was one of the great Broadway traditions for him and other men of the theatre to name playhouses for themselves.  I won't discount that perhaps some ego-stroking was involved, but it was also a shrewd business move.  The popular actor/producer was telling the public that even if he wasn't appearing in the house's current offering, the production arrived with his seal of approval.  This wasn't just some play paying money to rent his space; Henry Miller believed this to be quality theatre.
