Pee-wee Herman is back with an all-new, live stage show at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, and magical things are happening there just in time for Valentine's Day!
When Chicagoan Ben Zurawski decided he wanted to propose to his girlfriend of five years, Summer Violett, he contacted Pee-wee (aka Paul Reubens) to ask if he could do it on stage at "The Pee-wee Herman Show." Ben and Summer met online and immediately bonded over all things Pee-wee, Prince and Radiohead. To Ben's surprise, Paul gave him a call and said he wanted to help make it happen!
After the January 28th performance of the show, Paul brought the couple on-stage to say they won a raffle -- but instead, Ben proposed to Summer.
"I was so excited, I didn't hear him ask the question," said Summer, who added of the big moment, "I couldn't imagine a more romantic and wonderful proposal."
Of course, Paul is once again donning his red bowtie and floods for "The Pee-wee Herman Show," and all your favorite characters are back, including Miss Yvonne, Cowboy Curtis, Firefighter, Mailman Mike, King of Cartoons, Chairy the talking chair, Pterri the pterodactyl, Conky the robot, Magic Screen and more.
The show runs through February 7 at Club Nokia. For more info, go to www.peewee.com.
