Latin History for Morons
Tony® and Emmy® Award winner John Leguizamo, the self-professed ghetto scholar, tales Americans through a history lesson unlike no other. From schooling the audience on Cinco de Mayo—no, it’s not the Latino Fourth of July—and every other aspect of misunderstood part of Latin history they’ve misunderstood and forgotten to creating a heartfelt and funny tribute. From a mad recap of the Aztec empire to stories of the unknown Latin patriots who won American independence, Leguizamo breaks down the 3,000 years between the Mayans and Pitbull into 110 irreverent and incisive minutes.

Performances take places at the Ahmanson Theater in DTLA thru October 20.
