NEW YORK - 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, 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.
