Rita Moreno Aims to Hit the Right Accent on ‘One Day at a Time’

By MONICA CASTILLO

Rita Moreno sits among rare company. In addition to her memorable roles — “West Side Story,” The King and I,” “The Electric Company” — there’s the EGOT. Ms. Moreno, 85, has won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony (hence the acronym). Only about a dozen people have done so.

Yet even the most decorated stars have those they look forward to collaborating with. “That’s the magic name,” Ms. Moreno said in a recent interview. “Norman Lear. I always wanted to work with him. And we just kept getting older.”
