What is exactly is Latin History for Morons about?
With a rapid-fire lesson in overlooked Latin history, Colombian-American actor John Leguizamo premiered his one-man Broadway show John Leguizamo's Latin History for Morons. Examining 3,000 years of Latino history, Leguizamo charts everything from a satirical recap of Aztec and Incan history to stories of Latin patriots in the American Civil War, revealing how whitewashed history truly is. Latin History For Morons earned a 2018 Tony Award nomination for Best Play on Broadway.
Contains Adult Humor and Language. Again, all minors must be accompanied by an adult.
