Cher Announces Broadway Musical That Will Depict Her Life

A musical based on Cher's life is in the works to debut on Broadway in 2018. The singer confirmed the news on Twitter Tuesday night.  

Word of the musical started circulating in January, when the singer attended a read-through of the production. 

According to The New York Post, Jason Moore, known for the movie Pitch Perfect, will direct; Rick Elice, of Jersey Boys, penned the musical; and three different actresses will portray Cher at various points in her life. At the read-through, one of the actresses was Tony Award-winner Lena Hall.

Earlier this year, the singer accepted the Icon Award at the Billboard Music Awards. "I've wanted to do what I do since I was four years-old," she said during her speech. "And I've been doing it for 53 years … I'm 71 yesterday. And I can do a five-minute plank, ok? Just saying."
