Ghetto Klown Opens on Broadway
John Leguizamo has opened his third solo show on the Great White Way and the reviews are in. First, there was Freak in 1998. Then there was Sexaholix in 2001. Now, we have Ghetto Klown. Though reviewers loved Leguizamo's boundless energy, style, and impersonations, the writing seems less fresh this time around. The New York Times put it best when Charles Isherwood said that the play's issues are "as much a problem of the material's substance as is Mr. Leguizamo's interpretation of it."
