The Deal

Whoopi Goldberg

She has an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony—as well as two Golden Globes and a Mark Twain Prize for American Humor—but Whoopi Goldberg wasn’t always a household name. Her big break came when Mike Nichols brought her original one-woman production, The Spook Show, to Broadway in 1983. During the show’s 156 performances, her acting prowess caught the eye of Steven Spielberg, who cast her as Celie in The Color Purple two years later and cemented her place in American culture. From there she appeared in classic films, TV projects, and live shows, anchoring projects as diverse as Ghost and Star Trek: The Next Generation.

But as a writer, a comic, a storyteller, and an activist for human rights, Whoopi’s favorite lines to speak are her own. For seven years she’s expressed her opinions and annecdotes as a co-host of The View, and she recently plumbed comedy history when directing HBO’s Whoopi Goldberg Presents Moms Mabley. On stage, she boils down the lessons of a life lived with honesty and humor until audiences slap their knees sore.

Florida Theatre

When it opened in 1927, the Florida Theatre was the largest of 15 cinemas in downtown Jacksonville. Today, it's the city's last surviving vestige of that era's iconic architecture. Designed by New Yorker R.E. Hall and Jacksonvillian Roy Benjamin, the venue is a prime example of the Mediterranean Revival style, with a ceiling covered in glittering stars and a six-story proscenium arch. And even as the entertainment industry shifted towards television, the Florida Theatre survived by hosting interactive game nights and concerts from underground artists, including Elvis Presley. The space was renovated In the early 1980s, and today it returns to its entertaining roots by hosting live events and classic film screenings.
