Role in ‘Xanadu’ Beckons Goldberg Back to Broadway
Whoopi Goldberg is going back to Broadway.
Goldberg, a co-host on the ABC’s “The View,” announced on the air Monday that she will appear in the Tony-nominated roller-skating musical “Xanadu” as one of the show’s evil sisters, Caliope.
Goldberg, 52, has previously been on Broadway with her own one- woman show as well as in revivals of “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” and “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”
She begins her six-week “Xanadu” run on July 29, taking over for actress Jackie Hoffman, who will return to the production on Sept. 9, a spokesman said.
