National Tour Begins
Special Tony Award® Recipient
“John Leguizamo isn’t merely teaching us what
we’ve never been taught. He’s giving us a space to cheer
and cry, and to laugh, and listen.”
– Entertainment Weekly
Uproarious, uncensored, and undeniably entertaining,
the theatrical powerhouse is going on tour in his
one-man tour de force show.
When his son gets a school assignment on heroes, John seizes the chance to teach him all about the great figures of the Latino world. But once he sets out on his irreverent crash course across three continents and 3,000 years of history—from conquistadores to cumbia, Montezuma to Pitbull, and taking on the characters in all of it—he uncovers provocative truths that shock even him. JOHN LEGUIZAMO – LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS.
“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
