‘Klown’ lands in L.A.

Play launches tour at Montalban Theater

John Leguizamo’s solo show “Ghetto Klown” has skedded the first stop of its national tour in L.A., where the production will play the Ricardo Montalban Theater.

Latest in a string of autobiographical stage outings that has included “Mambo Mouth” and “Freak,” “Klown” recently ended a Broadway run for which grosses were steady but unspectacular. Producers announced it had recouped its $2 million capitalization costs last week, soon after the play finished its run.

Prior to Broadway, early versions of “Klown” were seen in cities including Berkeley, Toronto and Philadelphia. In 2012, the production will go to South America, where Leguizamo will perform the show in Spanish.

“Klown” is helmed by Fisher Stevens and produced by WestBeth Entertainment, Daveed D. Frazier and Nelle Nugent. Production’s 15-perf stop in L.A. runs Sept. 30-Oct. 16.
