John Leguizamo’s GHETTO KLOWN, which opened this spring for a 12 week engagement and was immediately extended at Broadway’s Lyceum Theatre (149 West 45th Street) closes on Sunday July 10.  The acclaimed production will have played 25 previews and 95 regular performances.   Plans are underway for John to take the show to other U.S. cities as well as to South America where he will perform it in Spanish.

GHETTO KLOWN opened in March and the critics weighed in:

“He has sabor: tasty, textured, and very funny… It adds up to a vivid, generous, irresistible evening of multi-cultural mischief. –   New Yorker, John Lahr

“Ferociously funny. He takes us way beyond laughter.”  Bloomberg, Jeremy Gerard

Leguizamo is “intensely talented…a preternaturally gifted impressionist…He can hold a room rapt…This is after all, a man who bit Lee Strasberg.  And he still has more than a few teeth left.” 

- New York Magazine, Scott Brown

4  stars.  “Ghetto Klown finds him in fighting trim and eager to take on all comers…It’s great fun to watch him up there in the ring where he belongs…A performer of electric charisma.” – Time Out New York, Adam Feldman

“Latino dynamo John Leguizamo struts up a storm in a hugely entertaining one-man show.” - Time Out New York’s Critics’ Pick

Directed by Fisher StevensGHETTO KLOWN is the next chapter in John Leguizamo’s popular personal and professional story.  It is his fifth one man play, his third on Broadway, and follows in the uninhibited tradition of his Mambo Mouth, Spic-O-Rama, Freak, and Sexaholix…a Love Story.  In Leguizamo’s trademark style, the piece explodes with energy, heating up the stage with vivid accounts of the colorful characters who have populated his life.  He takes audiences from his adolescent memories in Queens to the early days of his acting career and on to the sets of major motion pictures and his roles opposite some of Hollywood's biggest stars.
