Sherri Shepherd to make her Broadway debut



By MARK KENNEDY

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."

Good luck, Sherri. Make sure your soon to be lazy ex can't get any of your future hard earned money.

An appropriate role for her. She re-
jected the baby from their surrogate when the marriage fell apart. However, I'm happy for the baby...she would have been a rotten
mother! Hope she bombs, but good!

I to think this is an appropriate role but I do not want her to bomb. First of all she will not be able to reject the motherhood she signed on for. So make it big sherri so you can pay and pay oh and make sure to keep up that F.I.C.A. score. Oh and let me know when you are going to have another party so I can come and bring mine sorry I missed your last one.

thanks that she is off the view, she was a joke and this thing about her ex hubby is interesting. he was such a great person before and all the stuff about her marrage was an insult to people
