Whoopi Goldberg is going back to Broadway. Goldberg, a cohost 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, said Karl Nilsson, spokesman for The View.

The show -- an unexpected critical favorite -- was loosely adapted from the cult 1980s film starring Olivia Newton-John. It also features Kerry Butler, Cheyenne Jackson, and Tony Roberts. (AP)
