Chance Cyber Chat for “Latin History For Morons”
September 18, 2020 @ 8:00 pm
Chance Theater is thrilled to announce our next Chance Cyber Chat will be about Tony Award winner John Leguizamo’s one-man play, Latin History for Morons. Just because the doors of the Bette Aitken theater arts Center are temporarily closed, it doesn’t mean that the Chance and our audiences can’t still get together, connect and chat about compelling theater that is available online! In fact… you could say that now is the best time to focus on community and exhilarating theater productions.
To be part of any upcoming Chance Cyber Chat, register for free at www.ChanceTheater.com/cyberchat, watch the show online, and then login to Zoom on the corresponding Friday night. It’s that easy.
Chance Cyber Chat about
Latin History for Morons
Written and Performed by John Leguizamo
Available on Netflix
Chance Cyber Chat on Friday, September 18th at 8 pm.
Writer and star, John Leguizamo won a Special Tony Award for this hilarious and illuminating one-man show
ABOUT THE SHOW:
Uproarious, uncensored, and undeniably entertaining, Latin History for Morons is the show we need: a night of eye-opening historical narrative courtesy of Tony® and Emmy® Award winner John Leguizamo. The self-professed ghetto scholar schools America on Cinco de Mayo—no, it’s not the Latino Fourth of July—and every other aspect of Latin history we’ve misunderstood to create a heartfelt and funny tribute. From a mad recap of the Aztec empire to stories of the unknown Latin patriots who won American independence, Leguizamo breaks down the 3,000 years between the Mayans and Pitbull into 110 irreverent and incisive minutes. NOTE: This show contains some mature themes and language.
