Win Free tickets to see John Leguizamo - “Ghetto Klown”

Saturday, September 13th @ 8pm
The Chicago Theatre (175 N. State)

Win FREE tickets to see John Leguizamo - “Ghetto Klown” at the Chicago Theatre. One GRAND PRIZE winner will receive a $75 gift card to Petterino’s. “Ghetto Klown,” Leguizamo’s fifth one-man play, explodes with energy, heating up the stage with vivid accounts of the colorful characters that have populated his life. He takes audiences from his adolescent memories in Queens, to the early days of his acting career, 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.” Directed by Fisher Stevens and developed and produced on Broadway by WestBeth Entertainment, “Ghetto Klown,” earned Leguizamo a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance, an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Solo Performance and a Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance. In March of 2014, “Ghetto Klown” debuted on HBO, Leguizamo’s 5th solo special on the network. Click here to get more info. Enter below today!
