Pee-wee Herman is an American icon. His groundbreaking Saturday morning television show and hyperkinetic, bow-tied persona shaped a generation. Now, at long last, Pee-wee's starring on Broadway in a live extravaganza!



Big, bold and uniquely fabulous, The Pee-wee Herman Show is a stage play with music that reunites Pee-wee (the one-and-only Paul Reubens) with the beloved Playhouse gang - Miss Yvonne, Mailman Mike, Cowboy Curtis, Jambi the Genie, Pterri, Conky, Chairry and many more! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Pee-wee's Playhouse come to wacky, unpredictable life!



Get ready to be amazed, scream real loud and laugh even louder at The Pee-wee Herman Show. It's so good, you’ll want to marry it!

Featured Reviews For The Pee-wee Herman Show


Kid of Comedy - The New Yorker
Bringing Pee-wee back is an act of courage in defiance of the media’s puritanical twittering; it is also a great relief to his legion of fans, who, on the night I saw the show, were whooping it up long before Pee-wee skittered onstage like a bow-tied water bug, his face clenched in its familiar rictus of surprise and delight.

Pee-wee Herman, Already Hyper, Gets Wired on Sondheim's Stage - Bloomberg News
Typical scenes concern Pee-wee's love affair with Chairry, the female armchair our boy sits on, embraces and is hugged by; Jambi, the bodiless swami's head that lives in a box; and Pterri the Pterodactyl, who flits about arousing Pee-wee's yearning to fly. The plot, such as it is, hinges on the possible wiring of The Playhouse for Pee-wee's computer, which turns out to be a very bad idea indeed.

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.
