NEW YORK (AP) - A wicked stepmother has been picked for Cinderella on Broadway - Sherri Shepherd.

"The View" co-host said on the daytime talk show Tuesday that she will make her Broadway debut in the musical opposite Keke Palmer in the title role on September 9 at the Broadway Theatre.

Shepherd will end seven years on "The View" this Friday.

She has been on "Dancing with the Stars" and "30 Rock" as Tracy Morgan's wife, Angie Jordan. Her film credits include "Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire," ''Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" and "Guess Who."

The traditional fairy tale has been given a sly and witty makeover by Douglas Carter Beane. The songs by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II include "In My Own Little Corner" and "Impossible/It's Possible."
