Cher Musical Being Pitched To Hamilton Producers — But Someone STILL Hasn't Approved The Script!

Filed under: Music MinuteBroadway BabiesCherTony Awards

no title

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!

This guy could NOT keep it together!

Not that we blame him! Winning the 2012 Tony Award for Best Play is a pretty MASSIVE accomplishment!

Jim Parsons was the lucky man to give that accolade to Clybourne Park and its author, Bruce Norris, who beat out Other Desert Cities, Peter and the Starcatcher, and Venus in Fur!

Such a heartfelt, touching acceptance speech!

Congratulations to everyone involved!

A well-deserved win!

Newsies Takes Home The 2012 Tony For Best Original Score (Music And/Or Lyrics) Written For The Theatre!


We just have to say it is SO good to see Sheryl Crow looking so gorgeous and healthy!

But at the 2012 Tony Awards, the singer took a back seat as a presenter for the Best Original Score (Music And/Or Lyrics) Written For The Theatre, and it was Alan Menken and Jack Feldman who won for the music and lyrics of Newsies!

Wonderful wonderful!

Definitely one of our faves, so we're delighted to see them be honored for their work on it!
