A sold-out run at The Public Theater. A record-breaking engagement at Berkeley Rep. Endless critical and audience acclaim. Chalk it all up to the mad genius of Emmy Award winner John Leguizamo, standing at the head of the class in his one-man tour de force, Latin History for Morons.
When his son gets a school assignment on heroes, John seizes the chance to teach him all about the great minds of the Latino world. But once he sets out on his irreverent crash course across three continents and 3000 years of history—from conquistadores to cumbia, Montezuma to Menudo, and taking on the characters in all of it—he uncovers provocative truths that shock even him.
Uproarious, uncensored, and undeniably entertaining, Latin History for Morons schools all of us in the heroes of the past, and those present right at home.
