Puerto Rican Magic

Deanne and I had the privilege of seeing Rita Moreno tonight at Berkeley Rep in her biographical show Life Without Makeup. Is this woman really 80? Watching her strut across the stage, and casually talk with us about her life of finding herself amongst all she has lost, was inspirational.

She painted a picture of Puerto Ricans and their passion for the drama of life. I tasted that deliciousness and am forever changed.
