Cher is turning back time and giving us an inside look at her career in a new musical based on her life.
The singer (“Believe,” “Strong Enough”) confirmed the musical’s 2018 Broadway release via Twitter Tuesday night.
“Just got off phone w/Writer & Director of musical. There Will [be] performance in THEATRE WITH ACTORS, DANCERS, SINGERS!! IT’ll [be] ON BROADWAY 2018,” Cher wrote, including plenty of bee emojis where appropriate.
Chatter about the potential production began earlier this year when she tweeted about the success of a private reading in January. Set to be directed by Jason Moore of “Avenue Q,” the musical will feature three different actresses in the leading role, representing different periods of Cher’s career, according to earlier reports by Playbill.com. A few early moments we’d expect to be included: Meeting Sonny Bono in 1962, hosting “Cher” and filing for divorce in 1975 and winning an Oscar for “Moonstruck” in 1987.
It wouldn’t be a Cher musical without a rendition of “I Got You, Babe,” would it? Aside from the center-stage star, appearances by other characters — including Sonny Bono, David Geffen, Bob Mackie, Robert Altman and Sigmund Freud — seem inevitable.
The production is reportedly set to be produced by “Hamilton’s” Jeffrey Seller and written by Rick Elice (“Jersey Boys”).
An official release date has not yet been announced.
