Before opening night, John Leguizamo's latest one-man show, Ghetto Klown, has extended its Broadway run through July 10. The show, which began performances at the Lyceum Theatre on February 21 and opens on March 22, was originally announced as a 12-week engagement.
"I love that all my peoples are showing up to witness the latest chapter of my life on stage," Leguizamo said in a statement. "I want to keep this show open until I've messed up my 10-year-old son enough for him to be my understudy."
Following his previous hit Broadway outings, Freak and Sexaholix, Ghetto Klown examines Leguizamo's rise through Hollywood as he achieves fame and fortune but still struggles with many of his personal relationships. Ghetto Klown is directed by Fisher Stevens and presented by WestBeth Entertainment, Daveed D. Frazier and Nelle Nugent.
