During their daily gab session at the beginning of The View, a very made-up cast member of the show Xanadu, a big Broadway homage to the movie of the same name, announced that Whoopi Goldberg would be joining the cast for the month of August.

Whoopi, fresh off a story about playing ball at Yankee Stadium last weekend, said she is thrilled to be joining Xanadu at the Helen Hayes Theater during her vacation from The View. The Whoop doesn't mind skipping her vacation this year, admitting, "If I have vacation time, it's dangerous."
