The Cher musical is apparently well under way

2015-10-26
Cher has reignited excitement about an upcoming musical based on her life after tweeting that she's been back in the writers' room with Jersey Boys co-creator Rick Elice. The musical icon first announced plans an autobiographical featuring her biggest hits from the last six decades back in 2012, but news has been thin on the ground ever since. cher The 69-year-old revealed yesterday (October 25) that she'd spent three days with Elice, joking that her musical will be more of a "pain" for the Tony Award-winner. https://twitter.com/cher/status/658348088696832000 When the musical was first announced, Cher revealed that it would focus on three stages of her life, with a different actor playing her in each part: One actor will portray her before she met Sonny Bono; another after the couple separated in the early 1970s through to her Believe tour in 1999, and a third in the present day. "Prod r trying to write musical of my life at the moment! Its very interesting idea," she wrote on Twitter at the time. Stressing that she would be heavily involved with the autobiographical production, she continued: "I'm help. 2 write cause I was there and know stories that no1 knows but me." She added - not incorrectly, it would seem - "Its VERY SLOW PROCESS! Been working on it quite a while now [sic]." C'mon Cher, we know there's a lot of material to get through but we are dying for this - with all three of those aforementioned roles played by yourself, of course.
