The Grammy, Oscar, Golden Globe, and Emmy-winning entertainer’s life story comes to Broadway in this new musical, featuring her many hits including "If I Could Turn Back Time" and "I Got You Babe." More…
"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 songs, six decades of stardom, two rock-star husbands, and enough Bob Mackie gowns to cause a sequin shortage in New York City.
"'The Cher Show'…is extremely entertaining, and not in the mindless way you might expect…An eye-poppingly lavish, musically engaging show whose producers…aren't afraid to go overboard in order to replicate the visual excess associated with the Goddess of Pop…Most of the attention is garnered by Block's remarkable replication, not only of Cher's vocal qualities, but of her earthy personality, ready wit, and striking appearance…Delivers…slam-bang flash and glitter." Full Review
"Rick Elice's libretto for 'The Cher Show' may fictionalize Cher's struggles, but isn't a totally whitewashed version of Cher's glamorous rise to fame. It's an homage spanning her days with her musical mentor and husband Sonny Bono through her transformation into an Academy Award winning legend for 'Moonstruck.'" Full Review
"A new precedent for jukebox musicals. It doesn't take itself too seriously...The leading ladies shine on stage, sometimes quite literally, thanks to the fabulous costumes...A standout element of the show is the script. When any of the three Chers are talking, it feels like it could be Cher herself...With stellar performances, dazzling design, and jaw-dropping vocals, there is only one thing to say about it and uniqueness that sets it apart from other shows. It is, simply, Cher." Full Review
"I had a fantastic night and got more than my money's worth...Elice’s book goes a little too far into the Behind the Music realm...Had the book had more focus...it would be a very good musical...It is Block, that really keeps this monster of a show under control...Block fills in the blanks and hints at what is missing in some of the book; she adds depth even when the material isn't there. Hers is a performance not to be missed.” Full Review
"Set designers Christine Jones and Brett J. Banakis, lighting designer Kevin Adams and the legendary costume designer Bob Mackie provide shamelessly dazzling visuals that define director Jason Moore's slick production as a concert spectacular (or sometimes as a television variety show) with a plot...While 'The Cher Show' is flashy entertainment from start to finish, full of vibrant artists giving splashy turns, the center of it all is Block's solidly grounded acting performance." Full Review
"Her valentine to herself is just what a fan might have expected it to be: a glittering, glamorous Las Vegas-like jukebox revue elevated by a basic but snappy Rick Elice book...Block, Wicks and Diamond are so effective at their work that it’s got to be said that evidently Cher is imitable, after all...Jason Moore’s direction is spot on from start to finish, as are the actors energized under him." Full Review
"A wildly entertaining affair, 'The Cher Show' truly represents the singular superstar it chronicles: Just like the lady herself, this flashy new musical regarding the fabulous life and times of Cherilyn Sarkisian Bono Allman is funny, down-to-earth, madly flamboyant, occasionally conventional, blazing with talent, and delivers dozens of hit songs...Although 'The Cher Show' has its occasional stumbles, the production mostly is fluently staged by director Jason Moore." Full Review
“This brazen experiment in jukebox musicality renders unstable results, which is not necessarily a bad thing. The production radiates, providing thrills when you least expect it...But at the same time, the work suffers from some weak transitions, stilted dialog and a general crisis of identity...Thus, with a book that barely knows what it’s doing, balanced by a director, a costumer and a star who very much do, ‘The Cher Show’ is easily the most exciting new Broadway musical of the season.” Full Review
"'The Cher Show‘s' creators held on and infused this jukebox show with that same casual irreverence, playing homage to the icon with both sparkly style and fun...It’s frothy and bubbly, and makes not attempt for poignancy...These three stars combine with such stellar ease that we happily run along behind their sashay...Moving fast and furious through the years, 'The Cher Show' parades with panache...It’s sharp and solid, reflecting the incredible popularity of her hit parade." Full Review
"Granted, the jukebox musical that opened on Broadway Monday night has some clumsy and dopey dialogue...Still, it’s thrilling watching the 72-year-old diva’s rags-to-riches-and-back-again life woven by wall-to-wall hits. Stephanie J. Block gives the season its first must-see star turn as one of the show’s three Chers. Between director Moore’s flashy, fleshy, fluid staging and choreographer Gattelli’s high-energy and ridiculously sexy dances the production is light on its feet, too." Full Review
"The enormous talent onstage and behind the scenes, and the sheer audience-loving energy and confidence that suffuse this production, make for a grand evening of entertainment...All right. It's not perfect. The show at times is overstuffed and overindulgent, while at other times it rushes through segments that deserve a bit more than is offered. But what impresses me most is the amount of care that has gone into every aspect, including the casting of every single role." Full Review
"The glittering, gilded-lily work of experts who excel at their craft...A sharp sense of when to pause the non-stop delirium of Gattelli’s ferocious dances long enough for a bit of emotion to remind us that a mostly real story is unfolding. It happens when Cher pays an unexpected and heartfelt tribute to Sonny...It’s good-hearted hagiography and fun. If you’re a Cher fan, it will please you, and if you’re not, it won’t...Either way, you will leave the theater a devotee of Block. She’s a musta... Full Review
"We get Cher at three distinct points in her evolution, cracking wise and offering cautionary advice, encouragement and consolation through her ups and downs. That quasi-interior dialogue is often quite affecting...Is the show good? Certainly not in the sense of traditional musical-theater craft. Would I see it again? Duh, already planning on it. Director Jason Moore's production, unashamedly embraces its abundance of trashy-flashy, tacky vintage-Vegas kitsch." Full Review
“’The Cher Show’, a new bio-musical, never tries to be anything it is not, wholly owning its own wry silliness and decadent camp while honoring the pop legend whose story it quite legibly tells, and remaining blissfully entertaining. The show delivers exactly what it needs to—from songs to sequins...Block embodies Cher in a career-high performance. Capturing the self-effacing spirit and pizzazz of its pop diva, ‘The Cher Show’ is aptly titled.” Full Review
"Boisterous and appealing new musical...Cramming it all in to two and a half hours results in lapses, but much of the story is there...Throughout, the three Chers are a compelling presence, a group of BFFs who converse in sisterly style as they power through her hits...More than anything, the show presents a message of empowerment, as we watch Cher fight for the right to control her career — and her life." Full Review
“The book...although a bit campy...is crystal clear and informative...’The Cher Show’ might be billed as a jukebox musical; however...her songs fit perfectly into her life story...Gattelli gives...energetic production numbers...Moore moves the evening along at a fast pace...Then there are the costumes...An endless parade of astonishing outfits...There is nothing groundbreaking about this show, but it is good solid entertainment with performances that would be hard to beat.” Full Review
"There’s amazing Mackie costumes, there’s hunky backup dancers, there’s plenty of Cher-ism jokes pulled from her tweets, and there is even some feminism in there too...So focus on the rhinestones and the songs you love, and try not to to scoff at the whiplash-inducing, uneven book. This is quite an easy assignment, especially since our three Chers provide a lot for the audience to love...It is certainly not a well-written musical, but it is an amazingly fun night of theater." Full Review
"It refuses to be beholden to anything you thought you needed from a musical. The result is equal parts exhilarating and mystifying, hilarious and stupefying, empowering and conflicting. Sounds like Cher to me...As nuts as the whole enterprise is, it goes so far into the absurd that it reinvents the theatrical rules that bio-musicals depend on...It knows what it is and it embraces it. If a musical can’t be high art, at least it can be low art with integrity." Full Review
"The show whirls through six decades at a dizzying pace that disguises, up to a point, that it doesn’t have much to stand on...Cher’s actual hits can’t support that task: They are likeable but skimpy pop ditties. Elice’s script responds to this challenge by skipping past most of them quickly...Like Cher herself, the musical has the virtue of never seeming to take itself too seriously: It’s a delivery system for fabulousness, right up to its 'Mamma Mia!'–like finale, and as such it succeeds." Full Review
"Perhaps the best reason to spend your money on this tuner is the chance to see Stephanie J. Block turn in a performance of a lifetime as one of three women sharing the title role. Amazingly, Block manages to sound almost identical to Cher without relying on cheesy mannerisms or outright imitation, both while singing and delivering dialogue. As one who has seen Cher in concert, it's almost eerie how well she delivers the star's no-nonsense patter," Full Review
"This is sensational actress-singer Block’s show as she turns in a rousing performance...Primarily a flashy expedition...There’s little depth to the book as it attempts to span developments in Cher’s life and career...The main attraction is pure glitz, the kind that sets off applauding by Cher enthusiasts...It is a sweeping jukebox bio with a chance to ooh and ah at the costumes and enjoy performance highlights in the triple-duty depictions of Cher...particularly the stint of Block as Cher." Full Review
"Obviously skilled in the craft of writing Broadway musicals about popular singers, Elice once again relies on narration and a chronological storyline, hitting on key events with a fine degree of humor and heart...Artistically, it's no match for 'Jersey Boys'...Director Jason Moore does a fine job staging this complex show...We may have reached the saturation point with jukebox musicals, but for Cher fans eager to 'turn back time,' the beat happily goes on." Full Review
"All of the time Cher spends talking to herself might be better utilized in deepening the relationships with those who impacted her life...'The Cher Show' rarely takes itself too seriously, but when it does, the musical offers a captivating glance into Cher’s evolution from shy outsider to multi-faceted star...Director Jason Moore keeps things moving swiftly amid thesuggestive scenic design, which offers cinematic appeal and stadium-like theatrics for some of the flashier production numbers." Full Review
“I enjoyed ‘The Cher Show’ starring three interacting women at different phases of her life...The musical is honest about some dark stuff, like Cher’s difficulty reading and the way she was bullied as a child...A glorified Vegas tribute—veered between bouts of grinning and sympathizing. After a too jokey start—it settles into a lively swirl of dramatics, fashion, and music, with fun juxtapositions of the ladies, as they ‘turn back time’ and show how they made their dreams come true.” Full Review
“’Cher’ needs three actresses to play its title character because it spans most of Cher’s life...Block stands out with a take no prisoners performance that is simply fantastic...Being a superstar is hard work, and I have no doubt that Cher paid her dues and then some, but it’s a stretch to buy into her being a victim...Luckily, there is far more singing than sulking...The show, like Cher’s career, has a few valleys, but for the most part...Moore keeps it exciting, with lots of glitz and glitt...
