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.

Banal, Disappointing, Missed opportunity, Needs work

See it if You love Cher music but can't see Cher in person

"Except for the dozens of eye-popping outfits Mr. Mackie gorgeously recreates for the occasion, it’s all gesture, no craft: dramatically threadbare and surprisingly unrevealing...You can’t distinguish scenes meant to borrow comedy-hour elements from those meant to be taken at face value...

"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.

"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....
