Lin-Manuel Miranda Will Join Rita Moreno for March 5 Book Signing at Barnes & Noble
05 Mar 2013
A book signing for Rita Moreno's "Rita Moreno: A Memoir" will be held March 5 at the Barnes & Noble on East 86th Street.
The 7 PM-9 PM event will feature a conversation with Moreno and Tony winner Lin-Manuel Miranda.
In her new memoir, press notes state, "Moreno shares her remarkable story for the first time. With candor, humor, and real insight, Moreno opens up about her tumultuous childhood, her career rise from 'utility ethnic' to award-winning star, her explosive romance with Marlon Brando (and less than explosive romance with Elvis Presley), the ups and downs of her relationships and career, and finally finding peace with herself, her 'otherness,' her choices, and her life."
Barnes and Noble Upper East Side is located at 150 E. 86th Street (86th and Lexington).
Moreno is of the few artists to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
