Entertainment mogul Oprah Winfrey shakes off the unprecedented award-season snub from her critically acclaimed ‘The Butler’ performance by pushing forward to Broadway.
News broke today that the billionaire beauty is set to make her debut in the Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Night, Mother”, signing on after reports indicate Broadway veteran George C. Wolfe is set to occupy the director’s seat.
Also starring Tony Award winner Audra McDonald, word has it that the show is aiming for a 2015-16 season run. The report surfaces just weeks after it was announced that Winfrey joined Oscar-nominated actor Brad Pitt as producer for a new movie based on the life of Martin Luther King, Jr during the planning of the march on Selma, Alabama. The film will be aptly titled ‘Selma’.
