The Cher Show on Broadway
About The Cher Show
For six straight decades, only one unstoppable force has flat-out dominated popular culture — breaking down barriers, pushing boundaries, and letting nothing and no one stand in her way. "The Cher Show" is her story, and it’s packed with so much Cher that it takes three women to play her: the kid starting out, the glam pop star and the icon.
"The Cher Show" is 35 smash hits, six decades of stardom, two rock-star husbands, a Grammy, an Oscar, an Emmy, and enough Bob Mackie gowns to cause a sequins shortage in New York City, all in one unabashedly fabulous new musical.
Tell Me More
Get ready to turn back time! “The Cher Show,” the Broadway musical portraying the life of movie and music icon, takes audiences back through her illustrious career by way of a trio of stars: Micaela Diamond (“Babe”), Teal Wicks (“Lady”) and Stephanie J. Block (“Star”). With a book by Rick Elice, the Tony Award-nominated writer of the hit jukebox musical “Jersey Boys,” the production is directed Jason Moore, with choreography by Christopher Gattelli.
Joining Cher for the onstage journey are important figures from her life, including costume designer Bob Mackie; her first husband, Sonny Bono; and her parents. In “The Cher Show,” Cher invites audiences into her house to dive into her life and career — including highlights like selling 100 million records, winning the Oscar for “Moonstruck,” and captivating television audiences across the world with “The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour.”
What To Watch For
- Bob Mackie, the American designer who has been dressing Cher for years in her elaborate, larger-than-life looks, is designing the costumes for “The Cher Show.”
- Though Cher herself won’t be starring in the musical, she has given “The Cher Show” her seal of approval. After seeing the musical in its developmental stages, she tweeted that she sobbed and laughed — and that audiences gave it a standing ovation.
- Before being cast in the titular role, Stephanie J. Block played another music icon on Broadway: Liza Minnelli in “The Boy From Oz.” Minnelli is one of Cher’s longtime friends.
- The show’s producer, Jeffrey Seller, took on the show because Cher holds a special place in his heart. “I loved Sonny and Cher,” Seller explains. “When they got divorced, it felt like there was a divorce in my own family.”
