Pee-wee. Making the Theatrical Comeback

13 Jan

In hiding for nearly two decades, Paul Reubens, or shall I say Pee-wee Herman, is bringing back “The Pee-wee Herman Show” for a brief stint. Reuben, now 57, is also the writer and producer. In attempts to modernize the script, Reubens has incorporated such references as ShamWow into his 1981 material. In its hay day, “The Pee-wee Herman Show” had even graced Carnegie Hall on its 22-city tour.

Reubens has big hopes for this production to fund an even bigger film. Ed Wood comes to mind.

Club Nokia in downtown LA hosts “The Pee-wee Herman Show” from January 12th to February 7th. In his interview with MTV, Pee-wee states the final show to be February 14th, which would be an intriguingly unconventional Valentine’s date with your love-bunny. Sadly, he was mistaken.
