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.
Tilles Center for the Performing Arts at LIU Post
It seems like everyone has played the stage at Tilles Center. Past performers include Yo-Yo Ma, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and even a full-size dragon—or at least a puppet version of one. But not all of their bigger acts come from afar. The venue also plays home to local artistic heroes such as the Eglevsky Ballet.
