Biography

Rita Moreno, a paragon of royalty and grace, is one of the illustrious few to have achieved the highly esteemed EGOT, a feat that has only been accomplished by a select few. Born on December 11, 1931, in Humacao, Puerto Rico and raised in the nearby town of Juncos, Rita began her professional career at a young age, performing as a dancer in New York night clubs at the tender age of nine. At just 11 years old, Rita was gifted her first movie experience, dubbing Spanish-language versions of US films. Her success was unprecedented, and only a month before her 14th birthday, Rita made her Broadway debut in the play "Skydrift" at the Belasco Theatre. Her impressive accomplishments are a testament to her remarkable talent and unique skillset.
