Taken from "Whoopi Goldberg" Whoopi's first big break came when she appeared in her own one-woman show where she played seventeen different roles. Her performance was a great success, and the show toured the country and traveled to Europe. Film director Steven Spielberg noticed her in one of her performances and was so impressed with her acting that he gave her the starring role in his movie The Color Purple. Whoopi played Celie, a victim of abuse. It was an incredible performance, and Whoopi received rave reviews and many awards.Review:
