He describes the show as a constant work in progress—continuously editing scenes, changing moments and adapting to each night's audience. Leguizamo explains that the show can vary depending on the mood he is in when he enters through the stage door of the Lyceum Theatre.
The show, according to producers, takes audiences “from [Leguizamo's] adolescent memories in Queens to the early days of his acting career during the outrageous ’80s avant-garde theatre scene, and on to the sets of major motion pictures and his roles opposite some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.”
Ghetto Klown, which had originally been scheduled for a limited 12-week engagement, extended its run through July 10. "I love that all my peoples are showing up to witness the latest chapter of my life on stage," said Leguizamo in a statement. "I want to keep this show open until I've messed up my ten-year-old son enough for him to be my understudy."
