  John Leguizamo's Latin History For Morons at Ahmanson Theatre

John Leguizamo's Latin History For Morons

Ahmanson Theatre
135 North Grand Ave Los Angeles

Endless critical and audience acclaim direct from Broadway. A sold-out run at The Public Theater. A record-breaking engagement at Berkeley Repertory Theatre. Latin History for Morons, the most totally unique show of the season, reveals America’s unsung heroes, throughout past and present — all unforgettably told by Tony and Emmy Award® winner John Leguizamo, one of the most incisive, insightful, and entertaining personalities onstage today. 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 at the Ahmanson Theatre.

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...I first saw an early incarnation of “Latin History for Morons” at Berkeley Rep in the summer of 2016. The show, which had a brief run on Broadway after a stop at the Public Theater, has become sharper. The comedy still traffics awkwardly in stereotypes, but Leguizamo’s brashness is back. The strut, the salaciousness and the sneaky smile are in full wattage in a production that has been shepherded with great care by director Tony Taccone."

Stage and Cinema - Recommended

"...Director Tony Taccone, who just left his helm at Berkeley Rep, elucidates just why these one-man shows need leadership. Adding stage nuances that the book lacks, and adding super-tight light and music cues, Taccone takes what could have delved into a brow-beating White-shaming lecture and turns it into a show that is for everyone, even those who could get perturbed at the professorially clad Leguizamo’s mocking display of cultural stereotypes. In almost two hours, 3000 years simply flies by."
