Special Tony Award® Recipient John Leguizamo

"When you’re contending with an entire country that believes that Cinco de Mayo is, like, the Latino 4th of July, you know you’ve got some educatin’ to do. JOHN LEGUIZAMO’S LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS is the Broadway show that we need in a time when asylum seekers sit in cages at the border and most Americans would name Pitbull as the most important Latino of our time. Leguizamo’s meaningful paean to the struggle and history of the Latinx people is full of tongue-in-cheek asides and fascinating historical tidbits. Look up his syllabus for the program online (full of interesting reading material) and prepare yourself for a night of eye-opening historical narrative."

- (Dallas Observer)

"I grew up without seeing people who looked like me on screen, on stage, or in textbooks. Latinx people have been kept outta the conversation for centuries, and it’s bout time ya’ll hear what we gotta say! No matter who you are, this is your chance to come out and finally get your degree from a ghetto scholar!"

- John Leguizamo

“IN THE BATTLE AGAINST BIAS AND IGNORANCE, JOHN LEGUIZAMO DESERVES A COMIC MEDAL OF VALOR. HIS STRUT, THE SALACIOUSNESS AND THE SNEAKY SMILE ARE IN FULL WATTAGE.”

- Los Angeles Times

LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS ENLIGHTENS AND ENTERTAINS, DELVING INTO THE TRIUMPHS OF CIVILIZATIONS AND THE HUMAN HEART.”
