"Funny and surprisingly poignant, Latin History For Morons slyly poses sharp and timely questions of what culturally defines American Identity"

Ben Brantley, New York Times

Why See Latin History For Morons?

John Leguizamo returns to The Great White Way

Emmy Award-winning actor, stand-up comedian and playwright John Leguizamo is set to tread the Great White Way boards once again in his hilarious one-man exploration of Latin American culture and history. Returning to Broadway for a sixth time, the renowned actor was nominated for A Tony for the 1998 self-penned and self-starring Freak, a touching tribute to his upbringing in New York City.

Following a sold out, critically-acclaimed run at the Berkeley Repertory Theater in early 2017, Latin History For Morons comes to Broadways' Studio 54 stage for a limited run this Fall. Helmed by Berkeley Rep artistic director Tony Taccone, the production is a masterclass in the art of story-telling and humour, bringing Leguizamo face to face with his own heritage with hilarious and often touching results.

What Is Latin History For Morons About?

Upon finding out that his son's American history syllabus was woefully devoid of Latino history, Leguizamo was inspired to hunt for a Latin American historical figure for a school project. The search resulted in a one man-show that covers 3000 years of Latin American history in 95 raucously funny minutes. From the Aztecs to Ricky Ricardo, from shining moments to marginalisation, Leguizamo leaves no stone unturned.
