While media mogul Oprah Winfrey has accomplished quite a lot in her life, she has her sights set on accomplishing even more.

It’s no secret that Oprah is a fan of the arts, specifically Broadway, as she’s produced “The Color Purple”, “The Lion King”, and “Aida”.

Though soon, Ms. Winfrey wants to go from producing to starring in plays such as these. In a recent interview with The New York Times, Oprah said:

“I’ve been thinking about, for the past maybe three years, coming to Broadway myself, but when I see how much work is involved, and the kind of energy it takes to do that every night, I don’t know. I’m looking for the perfect material. Something will come along. If the right material comes along, then I’ll do it.”

Currently, O has been practicing her reading with Tony winner Audra McDonald, and says should an opportunity come her way (that fits her schedule and doesn’t require her to sing), then she’s all in to take the stage.

We wonder how soon in the future that may be?
