BOOK REVIEW: “Inside Pee-wee’s Playhouse: The Untold, Unauthorized, and Unpredictable Story of a Pop Phenomenon” by Caseen Gaines.
Preorder available HERE and at Amazon.com.
Inside Pee-wee’s Playhouse offers refreshing insights about the most celebrated playhouse of American pop-culture. Caseen Gaines divulges information about the show and movement that even the most savvy Pee-wee connoisseurs had been unaware of—that is, until now. Many fans instantly reminisce when they think of the hit television show, reliving memories of favorite characters, certain jokes, or particular episodes. However, this book exhibits value far beyond mere nostalgia. Gaines plunges deeper than ever before and explores the dynamics of the Playhouse and of Reuben’s entire career, which began with Groundlings Theatre troupe in the late 1970s and has led him all the way to contemporary Broadway and a Judd Apatow directed movie in the near future.
Over the years, the show’s continual metamorphosis has caught the discerning eye of many die-hard Pee-wee fans. Alterations in character appearances alongside unexplained character departures and arrivals throughout the show’s duration have continually aroused intrigue amongst aficionados. In order to better grasp the intricacies in the evolution of the Playhouse, Gaines interviewed over 200 individuals involved with Pee-wee, ranging from those involved with the show and movies, and even people involved in the merchandising process. This book uncovers some of the most rare and previously unknown aspects that have all been directly involved in the creation and transformation of Pee-wee Herman throughout the last 25 years.
Gaines magnificently reveals the inner-workings of the playhouse, from the show’s production to some of the relationships built on set. Inside Pee-wee’s Playhouse also investigates a few of the show’s setbacks, including never before heard information about the abrupt ending of its final season, courtesy of the head of CBS at the time of Reuben’s unfortunate and infamous run in with the law.
This book is a must have for pop-culture enthusiasts as well as anyone who has enjoyed the prodigious Pee-wee Herman phenomena. This publication prevails as a celebration of the Pee-wee movement through his personal successes, those of his playhouse, and the praise of all the creative people behind the scenes since the show’s inception.
Here is your chance to WIN this official DVD copy of “The Pee-wee Herman Show on Broadway”. This is not a bootleg or copy from television, but an official Emmy Awards screening copy that is still sealed.
