After years of teasing fans about wanting to turn her life story into a musical, Cher has confirmed that the show will hit Broadway next year.
The living legend, who turned 71 last month, announced the news on her favorite social media platform: Twitter.
“Just got off phone w/Writer & Director of musical,” she tweeted. “There will be performance in theatre with actors, dancers, singers… It’ll be on Broadway 2018.”
Cher: The Musical, which has been in the works since 2012, was written by Jersey Boys co-creator Rick Elice and focuses on three different stages of the singer’s life.
According to Playbill, these stages are represented through the characters of Babe (Cher’s early life with Sonny Bono), Lady (the artist’s successful solo career) and Star (the Cher we know today).
The show will feature iconic hits such as “I Got You Babe,” “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves” and “Believe” and will be directed by Pitch Perfect’s Jason Moore. Hamilton’s Jeffrey Seller and Flody Suarez are set to produce.
And just like that, our wigs have been officially snatched.
