Whoopi comes to The Horseshoe

Get ready “The View” fans- Whoopi Goldberg is coming to our area for one night only to help celebrate “Black History Month” at The Venue. The big night is Friday,February 11th, and while the theater is large ( roughly 2,400 seats) tickets will sell out quickly, so you can get yours by calling Ticketmaster or at www.thevenue-chicago.com

Ticket prices begin at $39.50 and the best seats in the house are $150. By the way, it is an 8 p.m. show and there are no bad seats, so oyou will be able to enjoy the comedy and wit of this “super-iconic female star”, one of the very few that have won Grammy, Golden Globe,Emmy and academy awards. as well as a Tony ( as a producer)

Whoopi is also known for her stand-up comedy and concerts as well as the charity work she does; human rights, education, substance abuse education , the battle against AIDS , and she is a Goodwill Ambassador to the United Nations. This New York native, who has lived on the West Coast as well as the East is a multi talented, intellect with a quick mind, a flair for comedy and a love of humanity. If you love her work on TV and movies, you will be in a “new place” when experiencing her LIVE on stage just a hop, skip and jump from downtown Chicago in Hammond Indiana.

Don’t drive? Horseshoe has free transportation to and from the Casino and Venue
