The Cher Show is a unique musical experience that features not one, not two, but THREE different stars playing Cher.

Cher has achieved so much in her career that it's a pretty tall order for just one woman to play the pop superstar on stage.

That's not a problem in The Cher Show, a unique musical that opened on Broadway in 2018 and features three different stars as Cher, marking out the distinct phases in her life.

The producers of a new UK and Ireland tour of The Cher Show have now announced the three actresses who will play Cher: Debbie Kurup as 'Star', Danielle Steers as 'Lady', and Millie O’Connell as 'Babe'.

Further casting for the new production, which will include the characters of Bob Mackie, Sonny Bono, and Cher's parents John and Georgia, will be announced soon.

As well as taking in the major events of her life, The Cher Show also includes a massive 35 Cher songs, including 'If I Could Turn Back Time', 'I Got You Babe', 'Strong Enough', 'The Shoop Shoop Song' and 'Believe'.
