John Leguizamo's Latin History for Morons

John Leguizamo's Latin History for Morons


JOHN LEGUIZAMO: LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS - Inspired by the near total absence of Latinos from his son’s American History books, John Leguizamo performs his latest one-man show: an outrageously funny, frenzied search to find a Latin hero for his son’s school history project. From a mad recap of the Aztec empire to stories of unknown Latin patriots of the Revolutionary War and beyond, Tony Award winner Leguizamo breaks down the 3,000 years between the Mayans and Pitbull into 110 irreverent and uncensored minutes above and beyond his unique style.

Following its Tony-nominated hit Broadway run seen by tens of thousands, John Leguizamo’s Latin History for Morons will play the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, CA on Friday, October 25, 2019. Don't miss the show The New York Times calls a "surprisingly poignant one-man play that slyly poses sharp and timely questions of what culturally defines American identity and who, in the nationalistic age of Trump, has 'the right' to be here."
