Academy/Tony/Emmy/Grammy Award-winner Rita Moreno makes her Carlyle debut.
Moreno is one of a select group of performers to have won all four of the most prestigious show business awards: The Oscar, The Emmy, The Tony and The Grammy. The Oscar was for her performance as Anita in the 1962 motion picture West Side Story. The two Emmys were for a 1977 variety appearance on The Muppet Show and a 1978 dramatic guest appearance on The Rockford Files. The Tony was for her 1973 triumph on Broadway as Googie Gomez in The Ritz. The Grammy was for her 1972 performance on The Electric Company Album for children, which was based on the long-running television show of the same name.
Along the way, Ms. Moreno received dozens of other show business awards, most notably the Golden Globe Award for her role in West Side Story and the 1968 Joseph Jefferson Award for Best Actress in Chicago's theatrical season for her brilliant performance as Serafina in The Rose Tattoo. In 1985, she repeated her Chicago triumph and was awarded the prestigious Sara Siddons Award for her portrayal of Olive Madison in the female version of The Odd Couple. In 1995, Ms. Moreno received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
