If you know me you would know I love history. Not only do I love history I love Latin history. Its part of what makes me who I am. Its a passion Ive had from a young age and just curiosity on digging deep in to my culture. So Im excited that John Leguizamo is taking his one man show to Broadway this fall in his original one-man comedic play LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS, direct from his acclaimed engagements at The Public Theater and Berkeley Repertory Theater.
Beginning performances on Thursday, October 19, 2017 with an official opening on Wednesday, November 15, 2017, the production will play a strictly limited engagement through Sunday, February 4, 2018 at Broadway’s Studio 54 (254 West 54th Street). Directed by Tony Taccone.
LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS is written and performed by Leguizamo,
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.
“FUNNY AND SURPRISINGLY POIGNANT, LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS SLYLY POSES SHARP AND TIMELY QUESTIONS OF WHAT CULTURALLY DEFINES AMERICAN IDENTITY. WOVEN AMID THE MEMORABLE ONE-LINERS, MOST OF WHICH CANNOT BE QUOTED, THE RESULTS ARE STARTLINGLY TOUCHING.”
– Ben Brantley, New York Times
Latin History for Morons will play Tuesday – Thursday at 7PM (exception 10/19/17 at 8PM), Friday and Saturday at 8PM, Sunday at 3PM. Saturday matinees at 2PM beginning 11/18/17.
