Leguizamo exorcises his demons in Sexaholix, an "in your face" comedy covering the many stages of relationships including dating, the chase, breaking up, break-up sex, make-up sex, marriage and divorce.
The show originally ran at Broadway's Royale Theatre. Opening Nov. 4, 2001, the production extended twice before finally closing Feb. 10, 2002. The work, nominated for the Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event, has played on stages across the country and was taped for airings on HBO.
The Colombian chameleon, who first caught the eyes of the theatre world with his one man show Mambo Mouth, later took the Drama Desk Award for Best Solo Performance for his Spic O-Rama. His stage work, Freak: A Semi Demi-Quasi Pseudo Autobiography, garnered him a Tony nomination.
Also a viable film star, moviegoers may remember Leguizamo as Toulouse Lautrec in Baz Luhrmann's "Moulin Rouge," in "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar" in drag as Miss Chi-Chi Rodriguez or in Luhrmann's "Romeo + Juliet" as a Virgin Mary-gun toting Tybalt. His biggest role came in the 1999 Spike Lee joint "The Summer of Sam." Leguizamo just starred in the HBO drama "Undefeated," which he also directed.
Tickets in the first two rows of the orchestra are sold at the box office (starting at 10 AM) on the day of the performance for $15. For tickets to Sexaholix... at the Broadway, 1681 Broadway, call (212) 239-6200.
