Whoopi Goldberg reportedly is in discussions with Roundabout Theatre Company to star with Frank Langella in a Broadway revival of William Gibson's Two for the Seesaw, according to a report in Variety. The show business newspaper said the project is "just an idea," but that Roundabout reportedly is "loosely slotting dates" for autumn 1996 and talking to Full Gallop director Nicholas Martin to stage the play.
Roundabout spokesperson Erin Dunne said the report was little more than a "rumor" at present.
Langella had a hit in January with a Roundabout revival of The Father. Goldberg got her start with her one-woman show The Spook Show off-off-Broadway in 1983, and then her breakthrough to stardom in her self-named one-woman Broadway show in 1984. She went on to an acting career that included films The Color Purple, Ghost and Jumpin' Jack Flash. She's also hosted the Oscar ceremony twice.
