The temperatures dipped below freezing and the frigid winds were gusting. A stomach flu threatened to take down my whole family. But did that stop me from taking a friend’s extra ticket to see The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway? Of course not!
I had been debating about taking my 5-year-old daughter, but it was great to go see the show with another Pee-wee Herman fan. It was a surreal moment when Pee-wee walked in front of the red curtain. I mean, there was Pee-wee Herman! When the curtains parted to reveal the playhouse, it was as though my eyes had never truly seen color before that moment. It was electric.
