John Leguizamo’s Road to Broadway follows Leguizamo as he prepares for his most challenging theatrical quest yet – cramming 3,000 years of Latino history into 90 minutes of stage time for his one-man show. With extraordinary access to his creative process, the film traces the evolution of his latest success, Tony-nominated play Latin History for Morons, from its challenging premise through its triumphant debut.
A special co-presentation of Great Performances and Latino Public Broadcasting’s VOCES, John Leguizamo’s Road to Broadway, was directed by Ben DeJesus, who also directed the critically acclaimed documentary Raul Julia: The World’s A Stage, premiering in September on PBS.
Continuing our 15 year collaboration with award-winning director Ben DeJesus and NGL Studios, Garbanzo created dozens on animated photos and interstitials, bringing the colorful Latino background of John Leguizamo to life.
