âFrom a young child with big dreams, from the shy daughter of an Armenian American truck driver, to the dizzying heights of global stardom, The Cher Show tells the incredible story of Cher’s meteoric rise to fame. Cher takes the audience by the hand and introduces them to the influencers in her life, from her mother and Sonny Bono, to fashion designer and costume designer Bob Mackie. It shows how she fought men who underestimated her, fought convention and, most importantly, was a trailblazer for independence. “
Arlene Phillips said of directing The Cher Show: âI’ve been a fan of Cher since I first heard I Got You Babe in the mid-60s and can’t wait to lead his musical. I love the stories of strong inspiring legends like Cher and I am proud to be joined on the creative team by two women who have already made a huge impact in their careers: Oti Mabuse as choreographer of the many different genres of the show and Gabriella Slade for the iconic costumes.
