Paul Rubens is dusting off his red bowtie and his white shoes and is getting ready to bring Pee-Wee back to the stage.
“I’ve put part of him away for a long time, but part of him has always been here with me, I think it will be like riding a bike — which is not a bad analogy for Pee-wee, by the way. I have some fear that he won’t be funny after all this time. I don’t want to ruin it.”
The main stage show will be at The Music Box at Fonda in Hollywood, with tickets going on sale today. "The Pee-Wee Herman Show" will run November 19th-29th. The original Pee-Wee show began at the Groundlings Theatre in 1981, and in 1985 Tim Burton directed his movie Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. It is said to include new songs as well as characters from Pee-wee’s Playhouse.
