Academy Award-winning actor and activist Whoopi Goldberg will bring her frank humor to Ruth Eckerd Hall on Feb. 28 as part of her national standup tour. This isn't the show for anyone who gets easily shocked by blue language. The View host, who exploded on the national scene after her 1984 one-woman Broadway show, revels in frank talk about real issues, no matter how graphic, from sex to menopause. This may be your best chance to see an EGOT in person. Goldberg is among the elite group of artists who have won an Emmy (both daytime and primetime versions), a Grammy (for 1985's Whoopi Goldberg), an Oscar (for Ghost, 1991) and a Tony (as a producer of Thoroughly Modern Millie, 2002). Tickets are $59-$125 and go on sale Saturday at noon at the Ruth Eckerd Hall Ticket Office, 1111 McMullen Booth Road in Clearwater or by calling (727) 791-7400 or rutheckerdhall.com.
