Whoopi Goldberg to Return to Treasure Island, 11/15
Whoopi Goldberg, who has been delighting audiences since the age of eight, will return to Treasure Island, November 15 at 9 p.m.
Goldberg began her career working in theater and creating characters that became "The Spook Show" and evolved into the hit Broadway show, Grammy Award-winning album and HBO special that helped launch her career. During her Broadway show, Goldberg grabbed the attention of Steven Spielberg who cast her in "The Color Purple," her first big-screen role. Since then she has starred in many other films including "Ghost," "How Stella Got Her Groove Back," "Girl, Interrupted" and will portray Calliope in her upcoming movie "Black Dog, Red Dog."
In 2002, Goldberg became part of a very elite group of artists who have won a Grammy ("Whoopi Goldberg"), an Academy Award ("Ghost"), a Golden Globe ("The Color Purple" and "Ghost"), an Emmy (as host of AMC's "Beyond Tara: The Extraordinary Life of Hattie McDaniel") and a Tony (as producer of "Thoroughly Modern Millie").
Goldberg has also penned many books including the children's book "Alice," the best-selling "Book," "Whoopi's Big Book of Manners" and "Sugar Plum Ballerinas."
Goldberg has appeared in a variety of television programs and hosted the Academy Awards. She currently serves as moderator of "The View" on ABC and recently guest starred on the television programs "Suburgatory," "The Middle," "666 Park Avenue" and "Glee."
A self-labeled storyteller, Goldberg's act covers real life occurrences, and material that is often categorized as taboo. With her trademark style, no nonsense attitude and witty humor, Goldberg is a truly one of a kind stand-up entertainer.
