Whoopi Goldberg will be coming to Broadway this summer to play "Caliope" in the musical spoof production of "Xanadu." Xanadu is based on the Universal Pictures film by the same name that starred Gene Kelly and Olivia Newton-John. According to the Xanadu website, "this hilarious, roller skating, musical adventure about following your dreams despite the limitations others set for you." Below is the synopsis...

Xanadu follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time - the first ROLLER DISCO…hey, it's 1980! But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds.
