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 Show is 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.

Jason Moore directs, with choreography by Christopher Gattelli and orchestrations by Daryl Waters.

FEATURED REVIEWS FOR The Cher Show

'The Cher Show' review: Solid cast lifts hot mess of a production
7 / 10

This meta theatrical concept is oddly appropriate for the campy concoction that is 'The Cher Show.' Directed by Jason Moore ('Avenue Q'), with bizarre and skimpy costumes designed by Bob Mackie and arena tour-style choreography, the production proves to be more tolerable than similar star-worship vehicles, though nowhere near as satisfying as 'Jersey Boys' (The Four Seasons) or even 'Beautiful' (Carole King).

Broadway Review: ‘The Cher Show’
6 / 10

Choosing to recreate the spirit of the television variety shows that Sonny and Cher - and then Cher sans Sonny - headlined in the '70s is a choice that lands as flat as the jokes in Broadway's latest jukebox bio, 'The Cher Show.' Its attempt to celebrate the resilience of its 'bad-ass' star and her half-century career of highs and lows rarely rises above that TV series' taste for cliches, corn and cheese. Despite an icon with attitude, an armful of pop tunes and a can-do cast, the script never quite finds a satisfying style - or a genuine heart - as a winning stage musical. As Cher might say: Broadway's a bitch.
