Cher has had an amazing career that has spanned more than 50 years. She has been a success in music and in acting. She even won the Oscar for Best Actress. There is really nothing she has not accomplished. However, she is not ready to fade away into the sunset at age 71. In fact, there will be a Broadway musical about Cher’s life that will debut in 2018. She recently made the official announcement. However, she did not reveal any other substantial details about the show. It will feature many of Cher’s most famous songs. The show will be directed by Jason Moore and written by Rick Elice.
The musical will be unique because it will not simply have one actress portraying Cher. There will be three actresses playing Cher at different ages. The casting process is currently underway. Cher did not reveal any info regarding any of the actresses who might be playing her. She also did not say if any casting decisions were final as of yet. There was also no official announcement about the theater on Broadway where the show will be performed. That detail is most likely still be booked at the present time.
Cher has talked on several occasions about producing a musical about her life. However, it has never come to fruition until now. She said that she was too busy earlier in her life to commit the time that was needed to personally oversee the project from start to finish. She has said that she wanted to be directly involved because the show is about her life story. Therefore, there is nobody better to tell it than her. Now she is older and she does not have as many irons in the fire. She has the time to sit through auditions and rehearsals for the show and give her input. She said that she can’t wait for opening night so an audience can see all the hard work that has gone into the show.
