"It wasn't exactly a creative moment", he added, "but Cher and I got on and she asked for me when she and Sonny started doing their summer specials". The new musical is penned by Rick Elice ("Jersey Boys"), with choreography by Christopher Gattelli ("Newsies") and direction by Jason Moore ("Avenue Q"). The kid on a tricycle, vowing to be famous. The glam TV star who quits at the top. The rock goddess with a hundred million records sold.

This fall, The Cher Show, a jukebox musical based on the life of legendary performer Cher, will premiere at the Neil Simon Theatre in NY. The wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend. They're all here, dressed to kill, singing their asses off, telling it like it is. "It seems insane, exciting and weird - but that's probably how my life seems to most people", Cher said in a statement when the show was first announced. Tickets go on sale March 23.

Although official casting information will be announced at a later date, Broadway favorites Lena Hall, Lesli Margherita and Jillian Mueller all took part in a workshop of the musical previous year.
