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 was nominated for the year's Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event.
The Colombian chameleon who first caught the eyes of the theatre world with his one man show Mambo Mouth — which won him an Obie and an Outer Critics Circle Award — later took the Drama Desk Award for Best Solo Performance for his Spic O-Rama. His most recent 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."
