The Pee-wee Herman Show
The Stephen Sondheim Theater, New York City
Brandon Hardy was a member of the Puppet Re-Build Team for the Pee-Wee Herman Show's Broadway Production. A concerted effort was made to retain the look and feel of these classic characters while plussing their exteriors and mechanical interiors to better suit the needs of the stage production. Among these tasks was the re-upholstering of Chairry, which was insanely cool to do.
The puppets have since been featured on Saturday Night Live and in the Broadway production's television special for HBO.
