John Leguizamo's Latin History for Morons Extends
The solo show will now run through February 25, 2018.
Directed by Tony Taccone, Latin History for Morons comes to Broadway following coproductions at Berkeley Repertory Theatre and the Public Theater. Inspired by the near-total absence of Latinos in his son's American history class, the show is Leguizamo's frenzied search to find a Latin hero for his son's school 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 Ricky Ricardo into an irreverent and concise history lesson.
The creative team includes Rachel Hauck (scenic design), Alexander V. Nichols (lighting design), and Bray Poor (original music and sound design).
