Ghetto Klown Summary

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 the sets of major motion pictures and his roles opposite some of Hollywood's biggest stars.

James Brown and Al Pacino, Salsa Added (NY Times)
John Leguizamo draws from the dances of decades (and from a movie star or two) for his kinetic movement in his Broadway show Ghetto Klown.
