Whoopi Joins Xanadu for Month of August

Just announced on The View...

For the month of August, Whoopi Goldberg will be covering the role of Calliope/Aphrodite in the award-winning cult musical Xanadu. Mary Testa, who plays the role of Melpomene/Medusa, appeared on the talk show and announced that Whoopi will be playing her conniving counterpart next month.

I love Whoopi! And I'm hoping that her stint at the Helen Hayes will bring more people to see this charming musical comedy that makes virtually all who see it an unexpected fan of the show.

My husband has mentioned several times that he would like to see (1) Xanadu and (2) her on stage (I saw her in Forum). Perhaps we can work it into our already crammed schedule. But even if we can't... you should!

Whoopi Goldberg will be featured in Xanadu from July 29th thru September 7th, 2008.
