Leguizamo’s ‘Sexaholix’ B’way bound

One-man show begins Oct. 8 at Royale

NEW YORK — John Leguizamo returns to Broadway in his new one-man show, “Sexaholix.” Performances begin Oct. 9 at the Royale Theater. Director is Peter Askin, with Robin Tate producing.

“Freak,” Leguizamo’s last Broadway venture, nabbed him a Tony nom for best play and best actor in 1997. Previously, he had appeared in Off Broadway productions of his shows “Mambo Mouth” in 1990 and “Spic-O-Rama,” in 1992.

Leguizamo is currently on the road with “Sexaholix,” which started perfs in Portland, Ore., on June 26, and winds down in Los Angeles at the Wiltern Theater on Sept. 1.

The New York stint is skedded for six weeks, although the actor’s manager, Jeff Golenberg, said it could be extended. Golenberg said Leguizamo started writing “Sexaholix” last winter — “when it looked like we were coming into a possible actors’ strike this summer.”

As for the intriguing “Sexaholix” moniker, Leguizamo explained: “The show is very sex-driven. It is the history of Latinos for Dummies. It’s about white Europeans coming over and sexing up Indians and menage-a-troising it with black folks. That’s how the Latin man was born.”

Golenberg said the show has been filmed on the road for a feature movie.
