Goldberg, who hosted the Tony Awards last month, will be coming up with her new album, which will be promoted by Jackie Hoffman.
“Xanadu has run just over a year and is a loopy spoof of the 1980s movie dud about a muse and Venice Street artist who opens a roller disco.
Goldberg also played a part in Nathan Lanes A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum,” she is also producing the revival of For Coloured Girls.
Goldberg pointed out that she like to keep herself busy.
“If I have a vacation it’’s dangerous,” she said. (ANI)
