John Leguizamo's GHETTO KLOWN, directed by Fisher Stevens, opened last night Tuesday March 22 at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre (149 West 45th Street) and BroadwayWorld.com was of course there to capture the opening night reception!

Yesterday, the producers announced an extension through July 10. GHETTO KLOWN began performances on February 21 and had been announced as a 12 week engagement.

Conceived and performed by Emmy and Obie Award winner John Leguizamo and directed by Academy Award winner Fisher Stevens, GHETTO KLOWN is presented by Westbeth EntertainmentDaveed D. Frazier and Nelle Nugent.

GHETTO KLOWN is the next chapter in John Leguizamo's popular personal and professional story. It is his fifth one man play, his third on Broadway, and follows in the uninhibited tradition of his Mambo Mouth, Spic-O-Rama, Freak, and Sexaholix...a Love Story. In Leguizamo's trademark style, the piece explodes with energy, heating up the stage with vivid accounts of the colorful characters who have populated his life. He takes audiences from his adolescent memories in Queens to the early days of his acting career and on to the sets of major motion pictures and his roles opposite some of Hollywood's biggest stars.

Leguizamo explains, "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."

GHETTO KLOWN was showcased in earlier incarnations in cities including Philadelphia, New Haven, Santa Fe, Louisville, La Jolla, Berkeley, Toronto, and at Montreal's Just for Laughs Festival.
