The Pee-Wee Herman Show
The Stephen Sondheim Theatre
now thru January 2nd
Do call it a comeback, a long overdue one, interrupted by some personal downfalls, but that’s all now juss a bunch of jizz on a porno theater floor water under the bridge!!!! If you believe in magic, well magic is very much alive at The Stephen Sondheim Theatre this fall thanks to the manchild in the gray suit, red bowtie and white shoes. Pee-Wee (bless you Paul Reubens) may have left us for awhile, but he never really left us. And how could he? Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and Pee-Wee’s Playhouse are timeless classics worth revisiting for generations to come, and so was his original stage production from 1981, which has now been updated with much modern flair (& rightfully includes the Playhouse TV gang) almost 30 years after the fact!!! Even the original Miss Yvonne (Lynne Marie Stewart), Jambi (John Paragon) and Mailman Mike (John Moody) are along for the ride and they shine on like the crazy diamonds they once were. Larry Fishburne wasn’t able to re-saddle-up as Cowboy Curtis, but don’t worry, he rides on, and so do Chairry, Pterri, Globey, Conky, The King of Cartoons, Penny and everything else you know and love from the wonderland of Puppetland (we forgot about those Coronet Educational Films)!!!
Our father is one of the biggest Pee-Wee fans we know, and after he saw the show in LA, he said it might not have been the most funny thing he’s ever seen, but it was a dream come true to see him do his thing under the proscenium. Well, he was wrong about one thing, the show is uproarious (in terms of awful puns, sexual innuendo, and childlike glee)!!! If Pee-Wee ever brought joy into your life at some point in time, do yerself a flavor and let him do it for you again. We love him so much, we may juss have to marry him!!!
And if not him, how bout Naomi from Lost?!?!
+ if you see the show, he unintentionally gives a Thigh Master shout out!!!
