If you missed the profile of Rita Moreno on PBS Newshour last week, it’s pretty good. Moreno was interviewed at her home in the Berkeley Hills about her autobiographical Berkeley Rep show, Life Without Makeup, and about her career. The segment provides a good retrospective of her 65 years performing for the stage, screen, and television. (Plus I didn’t know she had a romance with Marlon Brando.)

The show ends its run on Nov 6.
