Do You “Believe” Cher’s Life is going to be a Musical?!

“Do You Believe in Life After Love”? That sentiment sounds like the title of a big ballad from a big Broadway musical doesn’t it? And now it just might be… Those lyrics from Cher’s massive #1 comeback smash from 1999 “Believe” would likely be a highlight in an all new musical about Cher’s life that she is planning. The show would include all of her big hits from “I Got You Babe” to “If I Could Turn Back Time” and “Strong Enough” and has an interesting concept. According to Broadway.com, Cher would play herself in the current day looking back on her life and career while two younger actresses would portray her early years with Sonny Bono, etc and the years of her incredible solo career and acting triumphs. Cher, who has won 3/4 of the EGOT, i.e.: the Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony, could finally get that last piece (Broadway’s Tony Award) with the show. I think it’s a fantastic idea. How about you?
