Oprah Headed to Broadway, Eyes Return to Acting

May 11, 2011  •  Post A Comment

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.

  1. I just read in a popular entertainment pub that she is going to be placing most of her focus on OWN since it is not up to par yet. Clearly she shifts her priorities everyday based on her personal agenda.
