John Leguizamo is Electric and Stunning in Latin History for Morons

The Ahmanson theater has landed the hisghly coveted Broadway Tour of John Leguizamo’s Latin History for Morons, and nothing should keep you away.

John Leguizamo in “Latin History for Morons.” Written and performed by Leguizamo and directed by Tony Taccone, “Latin History for Morons” is part of Center Theatre Group’s 2019-2020 season at the Ahmanson Theatre and will be presented September 5 through October 20, 2019.

Latin History for Morons is inspired by the near total absence of Latinos from his son’s American History books. John Leguizamo embarks on an outrageously funny, frenzied search to find a Latin hero for his son’s school history 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 Pitbull into 110 irreverent and uncensored minutes above and beyond his unique style. Every breath John Leguizamo takes during the performance is electric. Never in all our years of theater have we witnessed an actor so dynamic and full of life in a one man show. He deserves all the Tony’s for his dazzling performance. Briming with humor, righteous anger, humility and passion, Latin History for Morons is a must see show!
