About the show

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.

"It’s such a garish, obvious pastiche, such an unabashedly soulless explosion of wigs and trite memoir wisdom, that somewhere in the midst of its overinflated two and a half hours—probably during one of its dips into stodgy, life-lesson-y sentiment between showstoppers—you start to wonder: Is thi...
