The Golden Globe nominee is back on Broadway with his latest solo show, Latin History for Morons.

John Leguizamo has returned to Broadway with his latest theatrical solo piece, Latin History for Morons, which officially opens November 15 at Studio 54.

The irreverent and incisive 90-minute solo play traces the marginalization of Latinos in U.S. history and beyond—from a satirical recap of Aztec and Incan history to stories of Latin patriots in the Revolutionary and Civil War and more.


Leguizamo stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers November 6, and shared stories from his acting career, including which role he turned down in the landmark 1993 LGBT film Philadelphia. Watch the segment above.

Leguizamo also spoke about his formal acting training, and shared his theory on how he potentially killed “the god of method acting,” Lee Strasberg.
