NEW YORK (AP) - John Leguizamo (leh-gwih-ZAH’-moh) is readying the latest installment of his life for a Broadway run.

The 46-year-old comedian-actor will bring a new one-man autobiographical show, “Ghetto Klown,” to the Lyceum Theater beginning Feb. 21. The show officially opens March 22 and runs 12 weeks.

“Ghetto Klown” will delve into the early days of Leguizamo’s acting career and his roles in Hollywood. It will follow in the tradition of his shows “Spic-O-Rama,” “Freak” and “Sexaholix.”

The new one, to be fine-tuned in Chicago in February, will be directed by Fisher Stevens.

Leguizamo won an Emmy for his monologue “Freak,” which originally appeared on Broadway in 1998.

He was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for his supporting role in 1995’s “To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar.”
