Latin History for Morons will begin previews October 19 ahead of an official opening on November 15. The limited engagement, directed by Tony Taccone, is scheduled through February 4, 2018.

The monologue play marks Leguizamo’s sixth solo venture onto the stage, following his success on Broadway with Ghetto Klown and Freak; he earned Tony nominations for writing and starring in the latter.

Latin History for Morons traces the marginalization of Latinos in U.S. history and the vital roles they played—from a satirical recap of Aztec and Incan history to stories of Latin patriots in the Revolutionary and Civil War and beyond.

The show also played an acclaimed engagement at Berkeley Repertory Theater, which co-produced the New York run.

Latin History for Morons is written and performed by Leguizamo, featuring scenic design by Rachel Hauck, lighting design by Alexander V. Nichols, and original music, and sound design by Bray Poor.

Nelle Nugent and Kenneth Teaton are producing the Broadway engagement.
