So thrilled and sentimental, I cried
26 March 2011 | by suzn_kSee all my reviews

25 years ago, every single Saturday morning at my sorority house meant watching Pee-Wee's Playhouse without fail. We all loved it; we all had our favorite characters. Mine was always Chairry. When CBS cancelled the show, I was heartsick. The show meant so much to us! And I have missed everything about it.

Seeing this Broadway comeback on HBO couldn't have been more thrilling for a Pee-Wee's playhouse fan like me. I only wish I were lucky enough to be in the audience. It was great seeing so many of the original characters. Sadly, we missed Phil Hartman. How great to see the original Miss Yvonne!

The staging and production was AMAZING. The puppeteers and voice-over artists were outstanding. And what can I say about Pee-Wee except I am so, so happy to see him again. There were so many moments that made me laugh so hard, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone. Let's just say, Pee-Wee is EXACTLY the same. He never misses a beat. The songs are exceptional. If you loved Pee-Wee's playhouse in the 1984 movie or in the late 80s on TV there is no way you won't enjoy this. And keep in mind, this was a live show...and everything came out perfectly. I hope this is just the beginning of Pee-Wee's comeback. You are our real Peter Pan! Thank you so much for this show!

Much love, your fan and friend, Susan in Chicago
