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

Why See Latin History For Morons?

Broadway ShowsPlays

Tony and Emmy award winner John Leguizamo on stage

After two sell-out runs in New York, Tony and Emmy award winner John Leguizamo returns to the stage with his critically acclaimed Latin History For Morons! Debuting at the Public Theater back in 2017, Leguizamo's "funny and surprisingly poignant" (New York Times) one-man show transferred to Broadway's Studio 54 the same year, garnering a Tony nomination in the process!

Latin History For Morons marked Leguizamo's sixth return to Broadway with the star already garnering a Tony nomination for his 1998 self-written and self-starring Freak. Tony Taccone returns to the production to direct. 

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.
