Actress, Singer & Author Rita Moreno at the Commonwealth Club
Commonwealth Club 595 Market Street San Francisco, CA 94105
From her Oscar-winning turn as Anita in the film adaptation of West Side Story to her challenging role as a prostitute in Carnal Knowledge, from her stint on the children's TV classic Electric Company to her late-career triumph in HBO's controversial series Oz, Rita Moreno has had a storied career. Now this powerhouse performer shares her story at the Commonwealth Club, in conversation with KQED Forum host Michael Krasny. She'll talk about being a Hollywood survivor, starting with her tumultuous childhood, to her career rise from "utility ethnic" to award-winning star, her explosive romance with Marlon Brando (and less-than-explosive romance with Elvis Presley) and finally finding peace with her choices and her life. Now 81, Moreno is still going strong -- she 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. She also authored Rita Moreno: A Memoir.
