As her syndicated show draws to a close, Oprah Winfrey appears to be headed to Broadway. The daytime talk queen tells the Chicago Tribune that she is meeting with Broadway producers and has a stack of plays she’s reading.
"Just this past weekend, I was in New York meeting with producers. We were just talking about what would be the best route to take. But yes, this is really going to happen. … Life is too short," Winfrey says in the piece.
Winfrey added that she believes an "ensemble production is the way I should go," according to the story, which quotes from an interview that will be published in a May 22 special section of the Tribune.
Winfrey said she hasn’t made a decision about what she’s going to do or with whom she will work. But she said she has an affinity for August Wilson, the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright who depicted the African-American experience, the story says.
