The Cher Show Sets Broadway Closing Date

The Cher Show, the new Broadway musical that charts the life and career of award-winning entertainer and pop-culture icon Cher, will end its run August 18 at the Neil Simon Theatre.

The production will have played 34 previews and 296 regular performances when it closes.

The new musical opened on Broadway December 3, 2018, following a Chicago out of town try out. A national tour will launch in October 2020 in Rochester, New York.

The Cher Show won two Tony Awards this season, including Stephanie J. Block for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role and Bob Mackie for Best Costume Design of a Musical.

Tony Award-winning Jersey Boys book writer Rick Elice wrote the book for the musical that incorporates 35 of Cher’s songs, from her career-launching 1965 duet with Sonny Bono, “I Got You Babe,” to her 2013 dance album Closer to The Truth.

Tony Award winner Block (Falsettos, Wicked), Teal Wicks (Wicked, Finding Neverland), and Micaela Diamond (NBC’s recent live Jesus Christ Superstar) play different incarnations of Cher.

Directed by Jason Moore (Avenue Q, Pitch Perfect), The Cher Show features costumes by Tony Award and nine-time Emmy Award-winning designer Mackie, who has collaborated with Cher over the years on myriad iconic looks, dating back to her 1967 appearance on The Carol Burnett Show.

Mr. Mackie’s fashions have been recreated in exact detail from the original pieces worn by Cher in music videos, television specials, concerts, and award shows. An entire number in the show is dedicated to Mackie’s dazzling collection.
