for Ghetto Klown

There's no doubt about [Leguizamo's] talent for storytelling. Leguizamo has an easy way with getting you involved in his life.

Review by Howard Shapiro from Philadelphia Inquirer

Leguizamo knows how to command a stage. Engaging and often very funny.

Review by David Rooney from The Hollywood Reporter

There is beaucoup entertainment value in the performer's dead-on (and deliciously cruel) impersonations of people he has worked with over the course of a lifetime in film, theater and television.

Review by Marilyn Stasio from Variety

Leguizamo's new play throbs with big laughs and deep poignancy, as well as the infectious Latin beat and manic energy that's become his signature.
