John Leguizamo's Latin History for Morons Opens on Broadway
The solo show recently extended through February 25.
John Leguizamo's new solo show, Latin History for Morons, opened last night, November 15, at Studio 54. Recently extended, performances will now run through February 25. Check out photos of Leguizamo and the stars in attendance in the gallery below.
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).
