John Leguizamo returns to his New York theater roots with his new autobiographical show Ghetto Klown Broadway. The latest work is currently playing at the Broadway's Lyceum Theatre. This is a funny and energetic production in which Leguizamo shares with the audience many personal stories throughout his life. From a small time Brooklyn native all the way to share the screen with some of Hollywood's biggest names. The one-man-show delivers just what many of his fans will rush the gates to witness and those unfamiliar with the talented actor/writer are sure to be amazed. There are plenty of hilarious moments throughout that are going to hit it off with a broad audience.
The latest Ghetto Klown Broadway production is nothing new to Leguizamo. The show follows in his string of one-man theater production such as the fast and loose Broadway production of "Freak and Sexaholix." Ghetto Klown tells stories of his trajectory to show biz with some real life family stories as well. The actor opens up about his childhood memories entertaining the neighborhood kids which led him into work on Off-Off-Broadway productions. His writing and performing would eventually break him into work on television and film working alongside Hollywood's elite.
While the Ghetto Klown Broadway production tells a lot about events in Leguizamo career life it also tells about his relationships. He can weave together hilarious, deeply personal anecdotes about his father, grandfather, first wife, current wife and best friend along the way. The show may sound like a recap of his "greatest hits" at first but ends up becoming a much deeper look into his life and decisions he made along the way.
Whether all the stories are true may become debatable to the audience. Most would seem to have to be heavily exaggerated for effect. In the end though it hardly matters as his comic and story telling abilities are what make the show so highly entertaining. One moment the entire audience is laughing while holding their bellies and the next be truly touched.
Mr. Leguizamo not only shows off his ability to write and carry the stage on his own but also showcase his performing abilities. He often breaks out of character into dances or instantly jumps into an impression of people he has known and worked with including Al Pacino, Patrick Swayze, Kurt Russell, and Steven Seagal. While they may not be perfect imitations they certainly show off the actor's ability quickly to shift his physical and vocal characteristics at a whim and produce some real funny moments. Ghetto Klown Broadway tickets are on sale now. The show opened on March 22, 2011 for a limited run closing on July 9.
