In the solo show, written by Tony Taccone, who developed the piece with the performer, Moreno reflects on her life and career.

Moreno won an Academy Award for West Side Story and received a Tony Award for her performance in The Ritz. Among her many other stage credits are She Loves Me, Damn Yankees, Gypsy, Master Class, and Sunset Boulevard.

In addition, she has won two Emmys for her work on The Muppet Show and The Rockford Files. Her performance on The Electric Company Album earned her the Grammy Award in 1972.

The creative team includes Anna Louizos (scenic design), Annie Smart (costume design), Alexander V. Nichols (lighting and video design), and Phil Allen (sound design).
