NEW YORK: Cinderella's evil stepmom is about to be replaced by "The Nanny."

Producers of "Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella" said Monday that Fran Drescher will make her Broadway debut Feb. 4 in the show, playing Cinderella's stepmother. Drescher's 10-week run ends April 13.

Drescher, an Emmy Award winner for "The Nanny" and whose film credits include "The Cadillac Man" and "This is Spinal Tap," takes over the role created by Harriet Harris.

Drescher has been onstage before, including roles in Nora Ephron's "Love, Loss, and What I Wore," Neil LaBute's "Some Girl(s)" and Ronald Ribman's "Rug Merchants of Chaos" at The Pasadena Playhouse.

The Tony-nominated musical has been given a makeover by Douglas Carter Beane, who has turned the fairy tale into a charming, witty story updated for a new generation.
