Endless critical and audience acclaim direct from Broadway. A sold - out run at The Public Theater. A record - breaking engagement at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS , the most totally unique show of the season, reveals American’s unsung heroes, throughout past and present – all unforgettably told by Tony and Emmy Award® winner John Leguizamo, one of the most incisive, insightful and entertaining personalities on stage today.
LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS is inspired by the near total absence of Latinos from his son’s American History books. John Leguizamo embarks on 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, Leguizamo breaks down the 3,000 years between the Mayans and Pitbull into 110 irreverent and uncensored minutes above and beyond his unique style.
"A funny, surprising poignant, and startlingly touching quest for THE PERFECT LATINO HERO!" - The New York Times
"BOISTEROUS, JOYFUL AND POLITICALLY URGENT, THERE COULDN’T BE A BETTER TIME FOR LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS. Keeping an entire theater enraptured through his own musings, impressions, and literal pratfalls, Leguizamo gives us a space to cheer and cry, to laugh and listen." - Entertainment Weekly
