UTICA – John Leguizamo – an Emmy Award-winning actor, voice actor, standup comedian, producer, playwright and screenwriter – is set to speak at Mohawk Valley Community College in Utica on Saturday.

“One Love: An Evening with John Leguizamo” is part of MVCC’s Cultural Series, and it will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday in the Jorgensen Athletic/Event Center.

You might recognize Leguizamo as the voice of Sid the sloth in the "Ice Age" films, or the character Toulouse-Lautrec in "Moulin Rouge!"

We caught up with Leguizamo on Monday to talk a bit about his upcoming show, and he says he’ll speak about the lessons he’s learned and the characters he has encountered throughout his career.

“I give some insight into what are my strengths and weaknesses in terms of writing, surviving ‘Hollywouldn't,’ and making it this far and staying on top of my game. What's the formula for maintaining success,” Leguizamo said.

Tickets are $30 general admission, $20 for MVCC employees and free for MVCC students.
