The show, directed by Fisher Stevens, 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."
Here is a look at Leguizamo and guests on opening night:

Klown, which had originally been scheduled for a limited 12-week engagement, recently extended its run through July 10. In a March 21 statement Leguizamo said, "I love that all my peoples are showing up to witness the latest chapter of my life on stage; I want to keep this show open until I've messed up my ten-year-old son enough for him to be my understudy."
John Leguizamo earned Tony nominations for his solo shows Sexaholix and Freak. He has appeared in Mambo Mouth and the short-lived revival of David Mamet's American Buffalo. His film credits include "The Summer of Sam," "Moulin Rouge," "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar" and "Romeo + Juliet."
The Lyceum Theatre is located in Manhattan at 149 W. 45th Street. Tickets, priced $29.50-$116.50, are available by visiting www.telecharge.com.
