Pee-Wee Herman's Playful Commercial
Never underestimate the power of reliving your childhood -- or early adulthood for that matter.
The upcoming Broadway production of is clearly awakening and energizing Paul Reubens' legions of long dormant, yet ever-adoring fans. As my current SOB Poll indicates, there's an outpouring of support for his beloved Pee-wee Herman personality. It's quite possible that Reubens' Great White Way debut will attract audiences that have never before seen a Broadway show.
Now, today's secret word (or is that weapon?) is: commercial.
A short and simple new ad has been unveiled for The Pee-Wee Herman Show. As a fan of the 80s television program, I'm thrilled to see that this glimpse into the stage show looks consistent with what captured our attention and admiration over a generation ago. Heh-heh!
Previews for The Pee-Wee Herman Show start October 26 at the newly renamed Stephen Sondheim Theatre. Opening on November 11, the very limited engagement closes on January 2, 2011.
