Cher’s story and music is headed to Broadway.

The Cher Story, a new musical based on the life and career of the iconic singer, will open on Broadway next fall following a Chicago tryout. 

“My life as a musical on Broadway. It seems crazy, exciting and bizarre -- but that's probably how my life seems to most people,” Cher said in a statement.

The production will debut with a limited engagement at Chicago’s Oriental Theatre on June 12, 2018, with tickets going on sale Oct. 18, before heading to the Broadway’s Neil Simon Theatre next fall. 

While the fall 2017 season has only just begun, 2018 is already shaping up to megastar year. In addition to The Cher Show and Pretty Woman: The Musical, musical adaptations of Frozen and Mean Girls will open in the spring along with the U.S. debut of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two
