The Cher Show Ending Its Broadway Run

28th June 2019 | Category: Theater

The Cher Show, a bio-musical, written by Rick Elice and directed by Jason Moore, is leaving Broadway after the final show on August 18th at the Neil Simon Theatre.

The final show follows a run of 34 previews and 296 regular performances and you can get your tickets right here.

Produced by Cher, Flody Suarez and Jeffrey Seller, The Cher Show opened on December 3rd and received mixed reviews. It has been slipping at the box office after earning $1 million-plus a week in its first three months.

With the total earning of $32.8 million, which is more than respectable, the producers apparently are looking at diminishing advance sales and cutting their losses before the summer tourist season is over.

The show features Cher at three points of her life, played by Stephanie J. Block, Teal Wicks and Broadway newcomer Micaela Diamond, with Jarrod Spector as Sonny Bono.

For her role in the musical, Block won a 2019 Tony Award for best performance by a lead actress in a musical, while Michael Beresse took home his first win for his role as a veteran costume designer Bob Mackie.

Do you believe in life after Broadway?

The Cher Show certainly does since the producers have announced that there will be a national tour kicking off in Rochester, N. Y., in October 2020.

“Telling Cher’s life story on Broadway has been a joy,” said Suarez in a statement. “Watching audiences relive her empowering story through six decades worth of conic songs, movies, costumes and relationships have been incredible. We look forward to taking this inspiring message on the road next year. We are incredibly thankful to this brilliant cast and crew.”
