So which Cher is your favorite Cher?
The naive, wide-eyed teenager who came to our attention as one-half of Sonny & Cher, of
If she could turn back time (you got that, I know you did), I think Cherilyn Sarkisian LaPiere Bono Allman would appreciate all three incarnations, and all are represented in the new Broadway show by her name at the Neil Simon Theater.
Three actresses play each version of the diva.
Micaela Diamond is the “Babe” Cher of the early days. Cher in her middle years, named “Lady” in the show is performed by Wicked veteran Teal Wicks, and the mature Cher, aptly dubbed “Star” is portrayed by Stephanie J. Block.
Sonny and Gregg also take the stage, along with the man who was perhaps Cher’s greatest love of all, Bob Mackie, her dress designer. Calling all drag queens! The spectacular dresses will be paraded about…plenty to drool over!
Tickets range from $59 to $229.
(To see her in person you pretty much have to take out a new mortgage on your house, so this is a great deal!) Check it our if you’re a fan of this 72-year-old diva. (Mick who?)
