Cher Announces Broadway Musical Based on Her Life Coming in 2018
The production will reportedly be directed by 'Avenue Q' helmer Jason Moore.
The musical version of Cher's life is coming to Broadway in 2018, the singer herself announced Tuesday.
Cher tweeted, "Just got off phone w/Writer & Director of musical. There will be performance in theatre with actors, dancers, singers. It'll be on Broadway 2018."

Jason Moore, who previously directed the stage musical Avenue Q as well as the popular a cappella film Pitch Perfect, is directing the show, which is based on the singer's life and career, according to reports from the New York Post. It features a book by Rick Elice (Jersey Boys), with songs drawn from Cher's greatest hits.
Following an ultra-secretive reading of the show in January, Cher tweeted her apparent approval of the musical, saying in part, "I sobbed & laughed, & I was prepared not 2like it. Audience clapped after songs, & gave it standing ovation."

The show is being produced by Hamilton's Jeffrey Seller and Flody Suarez.
A request for comment from Cher was not immediately returned.
