Four Chers sharing the same stage and not one is Chad Michaels? Believe it.
Cher made another surprise visit earlier this week to The Cher Show, the new Broadway jukebox bio-musical based on the 72-year-old diva’s illustrious life and career.
She received a standing ovation as she made her way down the aisle during intermission, EW reports, leaving fans gagged and shook.
Cher later posed with Tony nominee Stephanie J. Block (Falsettos), Teal Wicks (Wicked), and Micaela Diamond (NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar), who each play the icon at three different stages.
After the performance, the Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again star sat down with Tony-winning producer Jeffrey Seller to record a SiriusXM special, The Cher Show: Making the Musical, and discussed her reaction to watching her alter egos on stage, particularly during scenes in which an older Cher offers advice to a younger version.
“I only wish it would have really happened,” she said. "I could have saved a whole lot of painful shit, okay? I wish that they would have been there and someone who could say, ‘You can leave him!’"
It takes a gay village: Directed by Jason Moore (Avenue Q) and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli (Newsies), the show features a book by Rick Elice (Jersey Boys) and costumes by legendary designer Bob Mackie (portrayed by Michael Berresse), who has collaborated with Cher since 1967.
The Cher Show opens December 3 at the Neil Simon Theatre in New York.
