Since her talk show has been running so well, Oprah has had little time to do any acting. She did produce a version of The Color Purple for Broadway a few years ago, but has not actually got out there herself.
Well, she told The Chicago Tribune now that her show is ending she is probably going to do something on Broadway. I wonder if she will be any good. I wonder if she will be nervous to have it be a bomb.
She can certainly pick and choose which show is the most likely to succeed, but she also might want to pick a show that is already playing and jump in as a guest for a few weeks.
After so many years of being on top, you know it must be scary to be exposing yourself to not only to bad reviews but to a crowd that might never show up despite the Oprah name.
