Last night I got to see the new Pee Wee's Playhouse stage show. It was amazing, the set was wonderful, incredible puppetry and the magic that is Pee Wee. It was great to revisit his world that remains the same but was nicely updated so as not to seem just a thing of nostalgia. The kids in the audience loved it.
It also got me thinking about what a huge influence Pee Wee is on my own artwork. He really staked out amazing piece of territory and filled it with amazing characters. It is sad that it was all put on hold for years because of a little speedbump. But hopefully this new show will get it going again and the world of Pee Wee Herman will exist to entertain for many years to come.
