Whoopi Goldberg Coming to Strathmore May 27
Actress and pop culture icon Whoopi Goldberg will appear at the Music Center at Strathmore, May 27. The award-winning performer will present an evening of storytelling to include a question and answer session with the audience. On her Facebook page, Goldberg is requesting interesting questions for her performances at the London Palladium in February.
Born and raised in New York City, Goldberg worked in theatre and improvisation in San Diego and the Bay Area, where she created the characters which became “The Spook Show” and evolved into her hit Broadway show, Grammy-winning album, and the HBO special that helped launch her career.
Goldberg has starred in numerous films, including The Color Purple, Ghost, Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Clara’s Heart, The Long Walk Home, and more. Goldberg’s many television credits range from series, mini-series, and talk shows to movies and specials. She currently moderates ABC’s The View, for which she has won a Daytime Emmy.
Whoopi’s Broadway credits include A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and Xanadu. She made her West End stage debut in a special limited run as Mother Superior in Sister Act: The Musical in 2011.
