UCSB Arts & Lectures Justice for All Series: John Leguizamo (Canceled)
A&L regrets to announce that An Evening with John Leguizamo, originally scheduled for Wed., Feb. 2, is canceled due to the artist's filming schedule. We hope to present him in a future season.
“I see the new Latin artist as a pioneer, opening up doors for others to follow. And when they don’t open, we crowbar our way in.” – John Leguizamo
Emmy and Tony Award winner John Leguizamo has established a career that defies categorization. With boundless creativity, his work in film, theater, television and literature spans a variety of genres, continually threatening to create a few of its own. Leguizamo recently starred in the hit one-man Broadway show Latin History for Morons (now a popular Netflix special) and received a special Tony Award for his lifetime body of work. Now, he brings his irresistibly irreverent brand of comedy to a new evening inspired by his life story. Learn more.
This event is part of the UCSB Arts & Lectures Justice for All Series. Justice for All confronts the inequalities that shape our policies, our institutions and our lives. Our collective awakening demands a just, tolerant, open and socially inclusive world, one which frees us to thrive. In this series public figures, organizers, thinkers and doers expose deeply embedded injustices and call for a more equitable future. This series is presented in collaboration with UCSB Campus Partners.
CCS Dean Gerardo Aldana is a strong advocate in promoting a more just and equitable future and is excited to be a part of the Justice for All Advisory Committee.
