Episode 8: Rita Moreno

In this episode, we highlight Rita Moreno, living legend and ground breaker for the Latinx community. She’s one of 16 people to have achieved the prestigious EGOT distinction: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award winner.

We discuss her Oscar-winning role Anita in “West Side Story” (1961), “The Ritz” (1976) where she reprised her Tony award-winning role as Googie Gomez, and her TV roles in “Golden Girls” (Season 2, Episode 26) and “One Day at a Time” (Season 1, Ep 1 and Ep 2).
