John Leguizamo’s ‘Latin History for Morons’ to Make Broadway Move

Latin History for Morons,” the John Leguizamo solo show that played Off Broadway earlier this year, will move uptown for a Broadway run that begins in October at Studio 54.

Nelle Nugent and Kenneth Teaton — producers of shows including “The Trip to Bountiful” and the upcoming revival of “M. Butterfly” starring Clive Owen — produce “Latin History for Morons” on Broadway with Berkeley Repertory Theater and at Off Broadway’s Public Theater, where the show had its premiere productions. Tony Taccone (“Bridge & Tunnel,” “Wishful Drinking”), the artistic director at Berkeley Rep, will return to direct.

“Latin History” will be the latest Broadway stint for one of Leguizamo’s solo shows, following “Freak” (1998), “Sexaholix” (2001) and “Ghetto Klown” (2011); “Mambo Mouth” (1990) and “Spic-O-Rama” (1992) were seen Off Broadway. His latest solo outing was spurred by the lack of Latinos in his son’s American history class, and speeds through three millennia of history beginning with the Aztecs.

“Latin History for Morons” has lined up a limited Broadway run that begins previews Oct. 19 ahead of a Nov. 15 opening. The show is currently set to end its engagement Feb. 4, with the upcoming revival of “Children of a Lesser God,” starring Joshua Jackson, starting previews there in April.
