Actress/comedian/onetime Oscar host Whoopi Goldberg is a veritable "Jackie" of all trades. Goldberg retains her status as a mover and a shaker by making her grand return to Broadway this summer. Goldberg, who also moderates the daytime gabfest The View, will appear in Xanadu, the Tony-nominated roller skating musical. She will portray Caliope, an evil sister, for a limited six-week replacement run which kicks off on July 29. The musical is based on the cult 1980 film of the same name, which featured actress and singer Olivia Newton-John.
Goldberg has a history on Broadway, having appeared in her own one-woman show and revivals of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum and Ma Rainey's Black Bottom.
