John Leguizamo's Work in Progress

John Leguizamo has a new show and tickets are only $20!

The show opened Friday, Feb. 27th and runs through March 11th.

Now I've seen most of his one-man shows ("Mambo Mouth, the Tony-nominated Sexaholix (later taped for HBO; Emmy Award) and Freak: A Semi Demi Quasi Pseudo Autobiography") and movies and I can tell you he's fantastically funny (and loony). In fact, in one scene during one of the shows I forget, which he jumped off the stage and sat in my lap.

Apparently the show is literally a work in progress since this is description on the site:

"Yo, wat up?
Wat’s crackin?
Me that’s what.

I’m retooling, reworking, redoing a brand new show. Help, me help you get some anti recession. And anti depression hilarity. Come on down and be a part of history in the making.

Watch me trip up and mess up and you can twitter it to your friends, " I saw john f*&#k up. Ha! ha!" I'm not mad atcha. No haters allowed. Nor hating allowed. Help me come up with a title for my new show.

Come on down and represent. Watch me put down. Cause you know I can. "

You can buy tickets at or call (212) 868-4444, or visit the Barrow Street Theatre Box Office.

    Went to the show last night as a big fan. Left having laughed alot as expected BUT...John you come off like a very UNLIKEABLE guy. The whole show was about how you did not get along with ANYONE! Famous actors,family,friends,agents,wives. I think that will hurt your career if people start associating you with being d@#k yourself. Be funny and have fun!! Stop the atacks on the world> Just my opinion.
