      Rita Moreno: Actress, Singer, Author

      Rita Moreno, Actress; Singer; Winner, Academy Award, Grammy, Emmy, Tony; Author, Rita Moreno: A Memoir

      In conversation with Michael Krasny, Host, "Forum," KQED

      An extraordinarily talented star of stage and screen, Moreno is a force of nature. The Puerto Rican-born entertainer is one of the few artists to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony as well as the National Medal of Honor. Now, Moreno shares her story. From her Oscar-winning turn as Anita in West Side Story to her challenging role as a prostitute in Carnal Knowledge, from her stint on the children’s television classic “Electric Company” to her late-career triumph in HBO’s controversial series “Oz,” she will share tales of being a Hollywood survivor. Learn about her tumultuous childhood, her career rise from “utility ethnic” to award-winning star, her explosive romance with Marlon Brando (and less than explosive romance with Elvis Presley), the ups and downs of her relationships and career, and finally finding peace with her choices and her life. Moreno recently concluded a sold-out run of her one-woman show, "Life Without Makeup," at the Berkeley Repertory Theater, and is currently playing a Jewish mother on the TV Land series, “Happily Divorced.”
