The Pee-wee Herman Show

The Pee-wee Herman Show, starring and created by Paul Reubens, arrived on Broadway in fall 2010, playing its first performance on October 26, 2010, and opening to rave reviews on November 11, 2010, at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.

Radio Mouse Entertainment was on the producing team with lead producer Scott Sanders Productions, and fellow co-producers Allan Gordon, Adam Gordon, Elan McAllister, Roy Miller, Scott Zeilinger Productions and Carol Fineman.

Following its smash Broadway run, The Pee-wee Herman Show was filmed by HBO and aired under the title “The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway”, earning a 2011 Emmy Award nomination for Best Variety, Music, or Comedy Special.

Based on the 1981 stage production of the same name, with new elements from the CBS show “Pee-wee’s Playhouse,” The Pee-wee Herman Show was written by Paul Reubens and Bill Steinkellner, with additional material by John Paragon. The Broadway production was directed by Alex Timbers (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), and featured music by Jay Cotton and the work of puppetry artist Basil Twist.

Reuniting 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 –The Pee-wee Herman Show charted a day in the life of our bow-tied hero, one of the most inspired comic personas of our time.
