The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Based on the original show that launched Pee-wee Herman into an American pop culture icon, Paul Reubens’ beloved quirky character brings his Playhouse to life once more. The Pee-Wee Herman Show On Broadway was shot at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre in New York City in January 2011, immediately following the conclusion of its wildly successful Broadway engagement. The 90-minute HBO special is filled with subversive humor and childlike wonder based both on Reubens’ original stage show The Pee-wee Herman Show and the Emmy-winning Saturday morning television show Pee-wee’s Playhouse that quickly became a cultural phenomenon.

Review: What?!  Are you serious?!  This is perhaps the best thing EVER!  If you grew up in the 1980s and early 1990s you get a gift that no one in history has ever gotten..you never have to grow up.  Pee-Wee exemplifies this with his character, as well as this love letter to fans that is the Pee-Wee Herman broadway show!  The show runs like an episode of the classic show, which ran for five seasons until Pee-Wee had a few...issues.   That aside, we love Paul Reubens and we're SO happy that he's back with a vengeance.  This 90 minute feature doesn't grow stale for any fan of the old show.  This one will bring you back with a few great nods to the present day.  There are rumors of a new Pee-Wee movie in the works too, so this is just the beginning of the new era.  Welcome back Pee-Wee...we've been waiting for you.

The special features on this blu-ray include: Commentary with Paul Reubens and cast.

Interest Range: Broadway, Pee-Wee
