Looks like Stephanie is out of The Cher Show tonight.

Will anyone be there?

Would love to hear how Dee Roscioli does in the role!

I am excited to hear reviews - I think this is the very first time she has gone on ever.

Hilarious that Betty Buckley replied to her tweet.

From Stephanie’s wording looks like she’ll be out for a few performances, not just tonight.

Wasn't Block also sick during most of the rehearsal process while in NYC? Curious to hear how Roscioli is in the role?

She was most defineately out. I finally won the lottery
Great seat. H22. They dont announce or even put in a slip. You just get the entire cast list on a paper with dees name as star.

Honestly wanted to run halfway into the first number. I think the show is very thin to begin with so you need a star to carry it. This apparently was Dees first go. Its a half way characature of Cher. She in no way embodies the role. Hard to understand lyrics when she sings. I think in trying to get inflection shes slurring words. Her voice is sitting in a higher range up in her head sounding nothing like you expect for the role. My biggest problem was her physicality. The posture the walk the attitude and personality. Its not there. She is not ready to lead this show. All the reviews were centered around Stephanies performance and the problem is when you lose your star you are left with an excrutiatingly flat show.

^There was no disputing she was out so.....

Also, OP the title of this thread is really misleading.  It should say "Stephanie Block out of Cher Show tonight"

Was there tonight with 6 friends. Disappointed she was out. The understudy was outstanding. She should be proud of what she did tonight. Enjoyable show!

On comment regarding Stephanie’s attendance. Tonight is the first show where she was not there. Since the beginning of Chicago’s run until tonight she’s missed 0. This show is a thought 8 shows a week.

Be curious to hear if Block misses both shows today. If she's sick, I would imagine she'll skip the matinee at least.

'tis the season. A cold has been running around that theater. Jarrod lost his voice after opening night.

Any word if Stephanie is on for tonight? I have tickets for tomorrow and really don't want to see this without her. Does Ticketmaster accept exchanges/refunds if the star is out or do you have to do that only live at the box office? Could use some advise.  Thanks team  :)

That is my pet peeve in general. Is it that difficult to note ..SJB is out on Dec 9 (for example) in the title. If you just write tonight, people are freaking out for weeks if they hadn’t seen this earlier. Tonight is only accurate if you read this earlier on the same day. 

Regardless I hope Stephanie is feeling much better.
