John Leguizamo Schools Us in Latin History for Morons on Opening Night

Plus, he treats us to a voicemail recording by Sid the Sloth. logo

John Leguizamo's Latin History for Morons opened November 15 at Broadway's Studio 54. The solo show, inspired by the near-total absence of Latinos in American history classes, follows the actor-writer's frenzied search to find a Latin hero for his son. We asked the special guests who walked the show's opening-night red carpet what question they'd love to ask the star and posed those questions to Leguizamo following his performance. Watch our video to learn the difference between pasteles and buñuelos, the hazardous effects of too much dancing, and the way Sid the Sloth records a voicemail message.
