Latin History for Morons

Latin History for Morons

One Act
Uproarious, uncensored, and undeniably entertaining, theatrical powerhouse John Leguizamo is back on Broadway in his one-man tour de force performance, direct from acclaimed engagements at The Public Theater and Berkeley Repertory Theater. In Latin History for Morons, John Leguizamo schools his son—and the rest of us—on the buried and forgotten history of Latinos in the Americas in this outrageously funny, satirical one-man play about uncovering the truth, and recovering from the past.

SYNOPSIS: Inspired by the near total absence of Latinos in his son’s American history class, John Leguizamo embarks on a frenzied search to find a Latin hero for his son’s school project. From a mad recap of the Aztec empire to stories of unknown Latin patriots of the Revolutionary War and beyond, Leguizamo breaks down the 3,000 years between the Mayans and Ricky Ricardo into 95 irreverent and uncensored minutes in his trademark style.
