We don’t usually cover the Broadway beat here at TheFABLife, but for Pee-Wee Herman, we will make an exception. In case you hadn’t heard, Pee Wee (played by Paul Reubens) is bringing his legendary Pee-Wee Herman Show stage show to the Great White Way for a few months so that those of us who grew up on Pee-Wee’s Playhouse can relive our childhood. Mecca lecca hi, mecca heiny ho indeed.
It’s safe to say Pee-Wee is one of the biggest influences in our young life and we can quote approximately 99% of Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure verbatim. (By the way, you do know that actor Mark Holton, a.k.a. bike thief Francis Buxton went on to play John Wayne Gacy, right? Scariest poster ever? Yes, yes it is.) So, we personally can’t wait to see the Broadway show, but apparently neither could a lot of celebrities. Check out who was there on opening night, including some of our Playhouse faves like Miss Yvonne (the most beautiful woman in Puppetland!) and Cowboy Curtis (played here by Phil Lamarr, not Laurence Fishburne – he’s busy with other things these days.)
