Colombian-American actor and comedian John Leguizamo is returning to Broadway with his new one-man show “Ghetto Clown.” It will open on March 22 at the Lyceum Theatre (149 West 45th Street) and will run for twelve weeks.
Leguizamo’s fifth one-man show is a follow-up to his previous life musings. After already covered his sex life, family and childhood, 46-year-old comedian is ready to quip about his career ups and downs, acting choices, professional frustrations and working alongside Hollywood stars.
“It’s almost like a novel what you can do with a one-man show, said Leguizamo in his recent interview. “The writing is never easy. I understand structure better than I did when I was 26, when I first did my show. I understand themes and premise and all that stuff. I understand the mechanics so much better than I ever have. But it doesn’t make it easier. None of that helps. You have to toil like a Chilean miner.”
The previews for “Ghetto Clown” began on February 21 and the show is already getting a lot of attention.
“Ghetto Clown” is all the things I say to my therapist and my manager, but would NEVER want the general public to know. It’s cheaper than a lawsuit and I get to take a bow at the end. It’s like Wikileaks but with no international manhunt. Yet,” explains Leguizamo.
