"The Cher Show," performed by Theatre Under the Stars at The Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, is a dazzling extravaganza that pays tribute to the iconic Cher. Rick Elice's musical takes the audience on a whirlwind journey through the life of Cherilyn Sarkisian, brilliantly portrayed by three different actresses (Catherine Ariale, Morgan Scott, and Ella Perez) representing distinct periods of her life.

One of the show's standout features is the creative interaction between the three Cher actresses, offering unique insights and allowing for both comedic and heartfelt moments. From Cher's humble beginnings as a timid teenager to her rise to stardom, toxic relationships, and beyond, the musical covers a vast array of pivotal moments in her life.

The rapid pace of the production will keep audiences engaged, but it also poses a challenge in allowing emotional moments to fully resonate. The show moves swiftly from one moment to the next, offering a condensed yet comprehensive overview of Cher's life, akin to a Sparknotes version.

However, despite the rapid tempo, "The Cher Show" is a visual and auditory delight. Snazzy costumes, innovative technological sets, fitting lighting, and talented dancers contribute to a sensory feast. The music itself, accompanied by stellar backup vocals and harmonies, elevates the production to greater heights.

Fans of Cher will undoubtedly appreciate the homage to her legacy, while theatergoers in search of an entertaining spectacle will find plenty to admire in this Broadway sensation. With ticket prices ranging from $40 to $139, "The Cher Show" offers an accessible and enjoyable experience for audiences of all ages. Catch it before it closes on April 28th, 2024, for an unforgettable night at the theater.
