As part of his 2019 tour, comedian John Leguizamo is bringing his one-man Tony-nominated Latin History for Morons to Washington, D.C.’s National Theatre. Inspired by the near total absence of Latinos from his son’s American history books John Leguizamo’s Latin History for Morons will be at the National Theatre for one weekend only: Thursday, November 21 – Saturday, November 23.
About John Leguizamo’s Latin History for Morons
Known as modern theatre’s most prolific Latino playwright, 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.
Don’t miss the show The New York Times calls “a surprisingly poignant one-man play that slyly poses sharp and timely questions of what culturally defines American identity and who, in the nationalistic age of Trump, has ‘the right’ to be here.”
Latin History for Morons will be at the National Theatre from Thursday, November 21 – Saturday, November 23 for only 3 shows. Shows are at the following dates and times:
- Thursday, November 21 at 7:30 pm
- Friday, November 22 at 8 pm
- Saturday, November 23 at 8 pm
