Well I bought tickets for 2 shows during previews, the evening and matinee before opening night. Ticket prices change throughout the run and definitely go up after opening.

No mention of casting yet, but SJB is definitely singing “If I Could Turn Back Time” in the teaser trailer.

I posted clues that it was SJB months ago and several people guessed correctly. With this new trailer, as I suspected, by source was reliable.

Wow! One of my favorite actresses in a musical about one of my favorite artists. I couldn’t be more excited for this.

I am sooo happy to hear that Bob Mackie is doing the costumes for this show!  I CAN"T wait to see this show, I have been a Cher fan since I was a little child (over 50 years).  My dream would be to go to a preview and meet her before the show or at intermission!...

They have the Neil Simon in the fall, so they're confirmed to be coming in, but no confirmed dates for the Broadway run yet.

This certainly has the potential to be fantastic.
A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

You are aware that like the upcoming Donna Summer musical, 3 different actresses play Cher in various periods of her life/career.  If Stephanie J. Block is indeed involved, its obvious she plays the later Cher.

Block is indeed playing the eldest Cher.

They only have these dual Chers/Donnas so they can have epic duets and trios with themselves.

Really excited for Block but Chad Michaels was robbed.
