Actress, singer and dancer Rita Moreno has had an extensive and successful career.

She's one of the few performers to win Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony awards.

But she also had a tumultuous life - an affair with Marlon Brando led to a suicide attempt, and she struggled with being typecast as the exotic ethnic performer.

She's now published "Rita Moreno: A Memoir" about her life.

But before that, she told her story on stage in a one-woman show, "Rita Moreno: Life Without Makeup," at the Berkeley Repertory Theater in Berkeley, Calif., in 2011.

We revisit our conversation with Moreno about her show and her life.

This segment aired on April 10, 2013.
