Pee-wee Herman Irked His L.A. Fans
My new best friend Pee-wee Herman inadvertently ticked off some of his La-La-land supporters when he moved his show (the same one that's now on Broadway) to a larger theater.
A pretty major comic tells me that he had bought second-row seats to see Pee-wee's show when it was announced for a cozy theater in L.A.
But when the ticket-buying response was unexpectedly enormous, the show was moved instead to a gigantic space and those who had bought tickets were told:
(A) Your seats will not be quite so good anymore.
(B) You have to notify us to confirm them.
Instead, the comic canceled his tickets in a huff.
But it's hard to be mad at someone for being successful--especially after all Pee-wee's gone through!
The man is on fire!
Will you see him in New York?
