OMG! Cher’s musical is officially opening in 2018 – we’ve all the details


*screams and runs around dancing to Believe*

The Cher Show will play a limited pre-Broadway engagement in Chicago at Oriental Theatre from 12 June 2018 before heading to Broadway – opening officially in autumn.

“My life as a musical on Broadway. It seems crazy, exciting and bizarre – but that’s probably how my life seems to most people,” said Cher of her new big Broadway show.

The Cher Show is based on the life of Cherilyn Sarkisian La Piere Bono Allman… or as her friends call her, Cher!

The kid on a tricycle, vowing to be famous. The teenage phenom who crashes by twenty. The glam TV star who quits at the top. The would-be actress with an Oscar. The rock goddess with a hundred million records sold. The legend who’s done it all, still scared to walk on stage. The wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. The woman, looking for love. The ultimate survivor, chasing her dream. They’re all here, dressed to kill, singing their asses off, telling it like it is.

And they’re all the star of The Cher Show.

The new bio-musical will feature a book by Rick Elice, direction by Jason Moore, choreography by Tony Award-winner Christopher Gattelli, and orchestrations, arrangements and musical supervision by Tony Award-winner Daryl Waters.

Meanwhile, if you’re looking to see the music legend in the flesh, Cher recently announced a series of exclusive performances taking place in Las Vegas and DC in February next year, proving there really is life after farewell tours.

Ticket for Broadway, please!
