Back by popular demand! The Arsht Center welcomes the return of Tony Award-winner John Leguizamo’s one-man play Latin History for Morons. Following its recent successful run at the Center this summer and a Tony-nominated hit Broadway run at Studio 54 seen by thousands, the hilarious show returns for a two-night run. 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 95 irreverent and uncensored minutes above and beyond his unique style.
