John Leguizamo is heading back to Broadway early next year.

The Colombian and Puerto Rican actor will have a run of his one-man autobiographical show, "Ghetto Klown," at the Lyceum Theater beginning Feb. 21. It's expected to run about 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 "Sexaholic."

Directed by Fisher Stevens, "Ghetto Klown" will be fine-tuned in Chicago in February.

Leguizamo, 46, 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 the 1995 film "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar."
