On this morning on "LIVE with Kelly and Michael," Kelly and Michael sat down with "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella" star FRAN DRESCHER, who revealed what's really going through her mind when's she on stage. Check out her appearance below!

The celebrated musical RODGERS + HAMMERSTEIN'S Cinderella --originally written for television in 1957 by the legendary musical theatre duo Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II -- made its Broadway debut with music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, and a new book by four-time Tony nominee Douglas Carter Beane (XANADU, SISTER ACT, LYSISTRATA JONES, THE LITTLE DOG LAUGHED), based on the original book by Oscar Hammerstein II. Cinderella is directed by Mark Brokaw (CRY BABY, THE LYONS, HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE).

The musical has choreography by Josh Rhodes, and music adaptation, supervision and arrangements by David Chase.

RODGERS + HAMMERSTEIN'S Cinderella, one of their most popular titles, was written for television, debuting in 1957 starring Julie Andrews. Although stage adaptations have been performed worldwide since 1958, RODGERS + HAMMERSTEIN'S Cinderella, in fact, marks the Broadway premiere for the beloved romantic musical. Along with Cinderella, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein's legendary musicals include OKLAHOMA!, CAROUSEL, THE KING AND I, SOUTH PACIFIC and THE SOUND OF MUSIC.

MR. Beane's book for RODGERS + HAMMERSTEIN's Cinderella offers a new romantic twist on the ultimate makeover story of a maid-turned-princess, mixing fresh comedy and wit with the beloved tale's classic elements -- the pumpkin, glass slipper, masked ball and more. In addition to musical numbers from the original score, including "In My Own Little Corner," "Impossible/It's Possible," "Ten Minutes Ago" and "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful?," this Cinderella includes additional songs from the Rodgers + Hammerstein "trunk."
