John Leguizamo's Latin History for Morons @ The Public

Join FFIRs Kristin Horton & Lorena Llosa for John Leguizamo's Latin History for Morons @ The Public. Emmy and Obie Award winner John Leguizamo (Ghetto Klown) schools his son—and the rest of us—on the buried and forgotten history of Latinos in the Americas in this outrageously funny one-man show about uncovering the truth, and recovering from the past. 

Inspired by the near total absence of Latinos in his son’s American history class, Leguizamo embarks on a frenzied search to find a Latin hero for his son’s school 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 Ricky Ricardo into 90 irreverent and uncensored minutes in his trademark style.
