Rita Moreno will perform an autobiographical piece about getting into showbiz as an immigrant girl from Puerto Rico, Rita Swan reports in The East Bay Express.
The Berkeley Repertory Company in California is presenting a one –woman show, Life Without Makeup, starring West Side Story actress Rita Moreno. She’ll perform an autobiographical piece about getting into showbiz as an immigrant girl from Puerto Rico, and all the missteps involved (in this case, “without makeup” means “without embellishment”). The play will feature a live band and several tap dance numbers —Moreno, who will turn eighty this year, is still an agile entertainer.
