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.”
