If we could turn forward time, we'd head straight to opening night!
Ever since Cher confirmed a musical based on her life was still in the works, we've been patiently waiting to hear more about the Broadway show!
And now that new details have emerged, it looks like we can officially get excited!!
The music icon has been working with Tony Award winning writer Rick Elice, who is presenting the project to producers — including Hamilton's Jeffrey Seller – on Wednesday.
According to The New York Post, Seller will co-produce with Flody Suarez, who was reportedly the one who persuaded Cher to do the musical in the first place!
The show will feature several of the pop star's hits, including I Got You Babe, Take Me Home, Believe, and If I Could Turn Back Time.
If the play gets through this round, it will be presented to the 69-year-old herself on May 20 — where she will hopefully give the final hair flip of approval.
The star previously stated that the musical would feature three different actresses portraying her at different stages in her life.
The first will play a young Cher through the "Sonny and Cher" era, followed by another portraying the songstress during her Believe tour — and a third to play the legend at the current point in her life.
With hit songs, successful producers, and a fascinating subject matter — we're pretty sure this musical is a guaranteed hit!
Jimmy Fallon Donates $10,000 While Mark Wahlberg & Diddy Send One MILLION Water Bottles To The City Of Flint During Water Crisis!
To catch you up, the city is in trouble following a 2014 water supply switch from Detroit to a local water source. Unfortunately for the town's residents, the supply was found to contain high levels of lead which grossly affected MANY children.
On Sunday, the Tonight Show host announced on Twitter that he was donating $10,000 to Community Foundation Greater Flint — and asked his supporters to do the same:
And he's not the only one lending a hand…
Marky Mark and Puff also put on their capes and donated one million water bottles from their El Lay-based bottled water company AQUAhydrate. Flint is expected to receive 5,000 cases by Wednesday, and the business also promised to continue sending aid until the contamination problem is fixed.
What an incredible use of resources! Who would've ever guessed that much water could come out of LA!
We just love selfless acts of kindness from these celebs!

Madonna, Kanye West, & Cher Lead Tributes To David Bowie Following The Confirmation Of His Passing At 69
This is just so sad.
The music icon's family confirmed the heartbreaking news in a statement on Sunday and we almost still can't believe it. It's hard to imagine that it was just days ago that the Space Oddity singer was celebrating his birthday and dropping his 25th and final studio album Blackstar.
David's loss is most certainly felt worldwide. In fact, we're not the only ones to think that as many of Hollywood's A-listers took to Twitter to pay tribute to the Grammy winner — including Madonna, Kanye West, Ricky Gervais, Cher, and many more.
