Jason Moore, who directed the musical Avenue Q and hit film Pitch Perfect, will helm the show based on a book by Jersey Boys writer Rick Elice. According to the New York Post, “Cher: The Musical” chronicles her life, starting with her hard-scrabble childhood in Los Angeles, where her mother waited tables. Cher always knew she wanted to be famous, and got a job as a backup singer as a teenager. She met Sonny Bono in 1962, and the musical shows how they shrewdly climbed their way to the top of the music business, later becoming household names with “The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour” on television. After their 1975 divorce, Cher reinvented herself as a pop icon and movie star.”
