She’s won an Oscar. She’s won a Grammy, an Emmy and multiple Golden Globe awards, too. And now Cher seems to have her eyes set on yet another award for her trophy case, a Tony.
The actress, singer and provocateur took to what appears to be her preferred choice of communication these days, Twitter, to hint that she’s hard at work on a Broadway musical about her life.
“Broadway! Its VERY SLOW PROCESS! been working on it quite a while now,” Cher tweeted Sunday.
The “I Got You Babe” songstress has appeared on Broadway before, in 1982, in the short-lived production of “Come Back to the 5 & Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean.” This time, however, her time on the Great White Way will be personal.
“Prod r trying 2 write musical now about my life with my music,” she tweeted, also adding that she will help write the script because, “I was there and know the stories that no one knows but me!”
The star described the show to her many Twitter followers who breathlessly asked for more details as following three important stages in her life: as a young woman rising to fame with her then-husband, Sonny Bono, as “Sonny and Cher”; after her split from Bono as a stand-alone star; and then through her comeback “Believe” tour to today.
Fans hoping Cher herself will return to the stage should know the singer has no plans to “turn back time” and play her younger self.
It’s only the final stage, the 66-year-old Cher of today, where the actress joked she could play herself as “old Cher.”
“She’s wise n tells 2 young 1′s not 2 fear future,” she tweeted.
Broadway media outlets reported a representative for Cher as saying that no date is set for the show and that it could still be years away.
Cher’s last attempt at a musical was on the big screen, in the 2010 movie “Burlesque,” in which she starred alongside Christina Aguilera in the film that did not light up the box office.
The “Moonstruck” star is now said to be working on her 26th album featuring what she describes as “hardcore dance” music, including one track written by Lady Gaga, and planning a tour scheduled to begin in September.
