THE PEE-WEE HERMAN SHOW BROADWAY REVIEWS

Synopsis: Based on the Saturday morning television show that became a cultural phenomenon, 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.

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"The sounds filling the Stephen Sondheim Theater on 43rd Street are not the Broadway melodies you might expect to hear in a house recently renamed for the revered master of the American musical. They are, instead, the happy gurglings and raucous cheers of a thousand reborn inner children romping around a favorite playground. "

BACKSTAGE REVIEW:

"Full disclosure: On Saturday mornings from 1986 to 1991, you could usually find me in my pajamas watching the demented CBS kids' show "Pee-Wee's Playhouse." The weird part is that I was in my late 20s. Along with many other adults, I loved the show's unique mix of childhood nostalgia and freaky, double-entendre humor. Paul Reubens starred as Pee-Wee Herman, a red-bow-tied case of arrested development who gleefully tweaked the "family values" assumptions of Reagan-Bush America within the context of a harmless puppet-populated playhouse."

NEW JERSEY NEWSROOM REVIEW:

"Fuming about a Broadway attraction he saw the night before, an older colleague who shall go nameless growled at me, "Do you know anything about this idiotic Pee-wee person?""

VARIETY REVIEW:

"Fans of the art of Paul Reubens (a.k.a. Pee-wee Herman) will have a nostalgic field-day at the Broadway incarnation of "The Pee-wee Herman Show." Non-initiates will simply scratch their heads, look at their watches, and stare in wonder as the seemingly rational adults surrounding them scream out with joy when anyone says the secret word of the day, which -- no surprise here -- is "fun." Pee-wee fans will have plenty of that at the newly monikered Stephen Sondheim Theater (formerly the Henry Miller); newcomers are unlikely to be converted, and might just as well stay home."

USA TODAY REVIEW:

"The Pee-wee Herman Show (* * 1/2), which opened Thursday at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, has a less ambitious agenda. Based on the 1981 stage comedy of the same name and the beloved children's TV program it inspired (Pee-wee's Playhouse), the 90-minute show reintroduces Paul Reubens' adorably manic alter ego and his pals: Jambi the Genie, Mailman Mike, Cowboy Curtis, Miss Yvonne and others. The cast includes performers from the original production, by the Los Angeles improv troupe The Groundlings, and the CBS series."

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW:

"The shrunken suit, tiny bow tie and white loafers have turned up everywhere thanks to Thom Browne and his imitators, but the impish man-child created more than 30 years ago by Paul Reubens remains one of a kind. "

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS REVIEW:

"Everything changes, or so we're always told. But not so fast. If there's a compelling reason for "The Pee-wee Herman Show" to be on Broadway beyond delivering its gleeful dash of sunny but slightly subversive fun, it's to remind us that things can stay the same in our hearts and head"
