Synopsis: 

Ghetto Klown is the next chapter in John Leguizamo's hugely popular personal and professional story. It follows in the unabashed, uncensored, and 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, leading audiences on a fever-pitch adventure and heating up the stage with vivid accounts of where he's been and the colorful characters who have populated his life. Leguizamo takes audiences from his adolescent memories in Queens to the early days of his acting career during the outrageous 80s avant-garde theatre scene, and on to the sets of major motion pictures and his roles opposite some of Hollywood's biggest stars.

    CHARLES ISHERWOOD

    March 22, 2011: At 46, an age when many men are tempted to flee the treadmill and hoist the white flag in the battle against middle-age spread, John Leguizamo still appears to have the energy of a 12-year-old who has just downed a Red Bull and a jumbo package of Twinkies.

    March 22, 2011: Film actors ought to be very wary of co-starring in anything with John Leguizamo. As documented in his new one-man show “Ghetto Klown,” Leguizamo has a penchant for making up his own lines on the spot, much to the confusion and aggravation of those around him.

  • VARIETY REVIEW OF Ghetto Klown

    March 22, 2011: John Leguizamo hasn't done a one-man show on Broadway since "Sexaholic" in 2002, so rabid fans should turn out for his latest autobiographical opus, "Ghetto Klown," which had dry runs last year at Berkeley Rep and in Toronto. Auds with less emotional investment in the ups and downs of the star's personal life and career should find the show entertaining (the wicked impersonations, in particular), but nonetheless too long, too defensive and too familiar. Industry eyes might find added value in the show as a well-packaged audition piece for this hyper-active, hyper-talented and underused performer.

    Ghetto Klown

    David Sheward

    March 22, 2011: You would think that after writing and starring in four one-man shows on and off Broadway, John Leguizamo would have run out of ideas. But "Ghetto Klown," his latest solo effort, is yet another entertaining and insightful examination of the star-author's relationship with his family, lovers, and career.
