John Leguizamo's Broadway show GHETTO KLOWN is currently running at Broadway's Lyceum Theatre (149 west 45th Street) and he is currently featured on WNBC TV ‘s "1st Look " talking about the things in New York City that he can't live without.

GHETTO KLOWN recently announced an extension through July 10; it began performances on February 21 and had been announced as a 12 week engagement. 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 10 year old son enough for him to be my understudy."

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 Entertainment, Daveed 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.
