Straight Shooting Cher

The aforementioned Stephanie J. Block and Emily Skinner play important roles in our next story.  The Cher Show just opened at the Oriental Theatre in Chicago and essays the career of Cher through use of her songs.  Because Cher invented reinvention, three actresses play the diva.  The final incarnation is played to the hilt by Block, while Skinner plays Cher’s mom – and her performance was the one thing Cher liked most about the show when she went to see the musical.  What did she think of the rest of the show?  “Some parts of it are really fabulous.  We’re going to work on the other parts.  In many parts, it was much, much better than I thought it would be.  And there were no parts where I wanted to gouge my eyes out.  It needs work.  I’m not supposed to say that but I don’t care.”  And that, in short, is why we love Cher.  Hopefully everything is ironed out by the Broadway opening on December 3rd.
