Las Vegas— Critically acclaimed actress, comedienne, producer and host Whoopi Goldberg will return to Treasure Island November 11 at 9 p.m.
An early review described the future icon as “not simply a stand-up comedian but a satirist with a cutting edge and an actress with a wry attitude toward life and public performance.” More than three decades on, Goldberg’s comedy has evolved but not lost the side-eye-sharp perspective that made her one of the most popular comedians in the world.
Goldberg made her on-screen debut in an ensemble feature titled “Citizen: I’m Not Losing My Mind, I’m Giving It Away.” She then went on to perform on Broadway in her self-created, one-woman show called “Whoopi Goldberg” which opened the doors to the role of a lifetime in Steven Spielberg’s “The Color Purple.” Goldberg won her first Golden Globe for her role in the film, starring alongside Danny Glover and Oprah Winfrey.
In 1991, Goldberg won an Academy Award for her performance as “Oda Mae Brown” in the movie “Ghost.” She continued to further her acting career with roles in popular comedies including “Sister Act,” “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” and “Made in America” and went on to become one of the only artists to win an Emmy®, Grammy®, Oscar® and Tony® award.
Goldberg currently serves as a moderator on the popular televised talk show “The View” and voices the role of “The GameMaster” on Disney channel’s “Miles from Tomorrowland.” She is in post-production for a variety of projects, which include a TV mini-series titled “When We Rise” as well as a thriller titled “Black Dog, Red Dog.”
Tickets are available starting at $69.95, plus taxes and service charges, and can be purchased by calling 866-712-9308 or 702-894-7722, or visiting www.treasureisland.com.
