September 30 marks the birthday of actor and comedian Fran Drescher, most well-known for her hit TV series The Nanny. To celebrate, we're taking a look back at the role which gave Drescher her Broadway debut—that of Madame, Cinderella's stepmother in the 2013 Broadway production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella.

Drescher joined the cast in 2014 alongside "Call Me Maybe" singer Carly Rae Jepsen, who stepped into the leading role of Cinderella. The cast also featured Joe Carroll as the Prince and Tony winner Victoria Clark as Fairy Godmother Marie.

And The Nanny features a Broadway tie as well: The theme song was written by Tony nominee Ann Hampton Callaway, who performed it with her sister, Liz Callaway!
