Actor/comedian John Leguizamo is returning to Chicago with his critically acclaimed one-man Broadway stage show “Ghetto Klown” in tow.
“Ghetto Klown,” is filled with the colorful characters that have populated Leguizamo’s life, from his childhood in Queens, New York, to his earliest days in comedy and acting to his Hollywood film career.
“‘Ghetto Klown’ 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.’,” Leguizamo said in a statement.
“Ghetto Klown” is directed by Chicagoan and veteran actor/writer/director Fisher Stevens. The play, Leguizamo’s fifth one-man show, earned him a New York Drama Desk Award for outstanding solo performance, an Outer Critics Circle Award for outstanding solo performance and a Drama League Award for distinguished performance.
