Sanders says. '[Winfrey] understands how unique and challenging performing live on stage will be as an actress." He adds that the two of them have been considering an assortment of roles and plays "in order to find material and a character that truly resonate with her."

And then he dropped a hint of things to come, saying that the pair "recently read something that we’re both excited about but are not yet ready to officially announce the specifics."
