EVENT – Pee Wee Re-Opens Playhouse Doors

*CHECK OUR DAILY EVENT LISTINGS FOR THIS & LOTS OF OTHER COOL STUFF!*

8/11 ALERT: GIVE TICKETMASTER THE CODE “2HOORAY” OR “HOORAY” FOR DISCOUNTS ON FLOOR SEATS

8/10 UPDATE: An Los Angeles Times article on the show:

peewee“The new stage production is a “re-imagined” version of Herman’s past theatrical outings, according to promoters. The original version of the show debuted at the Groundlings Theatre in 1981 before playing at L.A.’s Roxy Theatre for five months. The production then went on a 22-city tour that included New York’s Carnegie Hall.

The new production will feature Pee-wee regulars, including Miss Yvonne, Mailman Mike, Cowboy Curtis and Jambi the Genie. Audiences can also count on appearances by Pee-wee’s talking chair, Chairry, and his friend Pterri, the pterodactyl.”

Miss Y-Vonne? Jambi? COWBOY CURTIS? Wait, isn’t Cowboy Curtis dissecting bodies in Las Vegas or something? Huh. So, do any of you readers know any more details? And is this something you can share with the rest of us, Amazing Larry?

Seriously, I remember the exact *moment* I first laid eyes on Pee Wee Herman. I was staying at someone’s house when my mom was out of town and I was alone in their living room flipping through cable (which we didn’t have) when suddenly there he was and I was TRANSFIXED. My friends and I were also big Oingo Boingo fans so the whole Danny Elfman music thing cemented the love. We saw Pee Wee’s Big Adventure on *opening night.* Yeah, that was us. Throughout art school I had a giant photo of him on my wall, and at one point my bedroom even sported a mobile from Big Top Pee Wee, with a flying pig that flapped its wings when you pulled a string. Somehow it went with my decor.

I have always said that the whole “scandal” was unfair… anyone who watched the first show *KNOWS* Pee Wee wasn’t originally created to be a character for children. I’m looking forward to seeing what Paul will do with this, and I’m really really hoping it’s going to be awesome. Fingers crossed. I think if anyone could pull it off, he could. No pun intended. Shame on you.
