WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Emmy Award winner John Leguizamo has appeared in more than fifty films, including Baz Lurhmann's Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge!, To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar, and all three Ice Age films as the voice of Sid. "Ghetto Klown" is the next chapter in Leguizamo's popular personal and professional story. It is his fifth one-man play, his third to reach Broadway. In Leguizamo's trademark style, the piece explodes with energy, heating up the stage with vivid accounts of the colorful characters that populate his adolescent memories of Queens, the early days of his acting career, and the sets of major motion pictures.
