Pee-Wee is Broadway bound.
"The Pee-Wee Herman Show" will have a 48-performance run at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre starting Oct. 26.
It is based in part on the cult TV show "Pee-Wee's Playhouse" and will star Pee-Wee himself, Paul Reubens.
Producer Scott Sanders said Thursday that it will follow "a day in the life of our bow-tied hero."
Other cast members will be announced later.
