NEW YORK — 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.
