OMAHA, Neb. — A lecture slated this month in Omaha by Oscar-winning actress Rita Moreno has been sold out.

The actress, singer and dancer, whose career spans more than 70 years, currently stars in the Netflix remake of “One Day at a Time.”

Among Moreno’s notable acting work are supporting roles in the musical films “The King and I” and “West Side Story,” as well as a stint in the 1970s on the children’s television series “The Electric Company.” She is one of twelve performers to have won all four major annual American entertainment awards: an Oscar, an Emmy, a Grammy and a Tony.

Her Sept. 27 speech is part of the regular Omaha Town Hall Lecture Series.
