Latin History for Morons takes audiences on Leguizamo’s search to find a Latino hero for his son’s school project. Disappointed by the lack of Latinos talked about in American history, Leguizamo embarks on a historical journey, uncovering the country’s forgotten histories. The show was originally performed off-Broadway at the Public Theater. After rave reviews, the satire was extended for additional dates in late April 2017.
The solo show is one of many projects Leguizamo has starred in. His past shows include 2011’s Ghetto Klown, 2001’s Sexholix and 1998’s Freak.
Latin History for Morons will preview on Oct. 19 at New York’s Studio 54 and officially open on Nov. 15. It will end its Broadway stint on Feb. 4.
