John Leguizamo to appear at MVCC as part of Cultural Series
Sep 12, 2018
The Mohawk Valley Community College Cultural Series will present “One Love: An Evening with John Leguizamo” at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, in the Jorgensen Athletic/Event Center at the College’s Utica Campus. Admission is $30 general, $20 for MVCC employees, and free for MVCC students. Tickets are available at mvcc.edu/tickets.
Leguizamo, an Emmy Award-winning actor, voice actor, stand-up comedian, producer, playwright, and screenwriter, first came to prominence on the lecture circuit touring the nation’s colleges and stages with his one-man show “Ghetto Klown,” which traced his life from growing up in Queens through his avant-garde theater origins in the 1980s, to his film career, including such films as “Moulin Rouge,” “Romeo + Juliet,” “Carlito’s Way,” “Spawn,” “John Wick,” and “Ice Age.” Most recently, Leguizamo was seen in “The Infiltrator” with Bryan Cranston, “Sisters” with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and “American Ultra” with Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart. He is now taking his entire story — the lessons he’s learned, the characters he’s encountered, his passion for education, his struggles against racism and poverty — to audiences around the country with “One Love: An Evening with John Leguizamo.”
Tickets for all Cultural Series events can be purchased in person at the MVCC Box Office, Information Technology Building room 106, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday-Friday, and at the College Stores on the Utica and Rome Campuses; online any time at mvcc.edu/tickets; or over the phone by calling 315-731-5721. Most Cultural Series events are $5 or less to the general public and many are free. Events include concerts, comedians, lectures, film screenings and discussions, workshops, family fun events, and more. The Cultural Series is brought to you by MVCC’s Cultural Events Council, in collaboration with MVCC’s Program Board, with significant support from the Student Activity Fee. The series maintains a major social media presence that can be followed on Facebook at “MVCC Cultural Series.” For the complete series lineup and ticket sales, visit mvcc.edu/culture.
