Latinologues is a hilarious live performance of comedic and poignant monologues about Latino life in America. Written, created and directed by famed author, actor and playwright Rick Najera (who has written for Mad TV and In Living Color), Latinologues has toured the country to numerous accolades and rave reviews.

It took home the prestigious 2004 Imagen Award for Best Live Theatrical Production, while the Los Angeles Times says, "Latinologues reduces indignities to laughter... [It] never settles for half-truths or cliches. [It] shows Latinos for what they are: complex individuals."

Latinologues features a rotating cast. Edward James Olmos, Erik Estrada, Mario Lopez and many more are among its alumni. This year's edition stars Najera, plus Rene Lavan, Eugenio Derbez, Ruth Livier and Monica Ortiz. The Wiltern LG will host Latinologues on Friday, June 24th.
