Actor Whoopi Goldberg (above) will be one of the headliners of the Guthrie's 50th anniversary gala, the Minneapolis theater announced Monday.
Goldberg, a co-host of "The View," has done stand-up engagements at the old Guthrie on Vineland Place. She did a five-night stand there in 1988 and a one-night gig in June 2001.
Golberg won an Oscar for her role in "Ghost." She also was a producer of the Tony-winning show "Thoroughly Modern Millie."
Golberg joins a roster of actors and entertainers that includes T.R. Knight ("Grey's Anatomy"), Patricia Kalember ("thirtysomething"), Tony nominee Tracie Bennett ("End of the Rainbow"), and the vocal group Cantus.
