Cher Sees CHER SHOW in Chicago: 'Much Better Than I Thought It Would Be'

The Cher Show has begun previews in Chicago, and who better to catch an early look than Cher herself! The superstar stopped by the Oriental Theatre for three performances this past weekend to check out the show. "Some parts of it are really fabulous. We're going to work on the other parts. In many parts, it was much, much better than I thought it would be. And there were no parts where I wanted to gouge my eyes out," she tells the Chicago Tribune. "It needs work. I'm not supposed to say that but I don't care."

She continues: "If they can impress me, they're doing good. The girls who play me have so much to do. The lady who plays my mom is great. That's a very important part. It starts the whole tenor of the project: How my mom treated me as a child. That is why I am how I am who I am now."

Superstars come and go. Cher is forever. For six straight decades, only one unstoppable force has flat-out dominated popular culture - breaking down barriers, pushing boundaries, and letting nothing and no one stand in her way.

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 Showis 35 smash hits, six decades of stardom, two rock-star husbands, a Grammy, an Oscar, an Emmy, and enough Bob Mackie gowns to cause a sequins shortage in New York City, all in one unabashedly fabulous new musical.

Let's do this, bitches!

The Cher Show will star Tony Award nominee Stephanie J. Block (Falsettos, The Mystery of Edwin Drood), Teal Wicks (Wicked, Finding Neverland), and Micaela Diamond(Broadway debut) in the role of the iconic singer and actress at various times in her life and career.
