Cher, one of the most iconic pop singers and Twitter users of all time, is allowing us all to revel in her life story via a Broadway musical that she announced will be out in 2018.

The New York Post reported in January that Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller and Avenue Q director Jason Moore presented their vision for Cher’s story to the queen in a secret reading. She tweeted at the time that she’d gone in with hesitation and left crying and laughing:


On Tuesday night, she tweeted that the show will be coming to a theater on Broadway in 2018:

Deadline reports that the show will follow Cher’s life from when she was a child, through meeting Sonny Bono in 1962, then to her reinvention as a solo star after their divorce (this is a reminder that you should re-watch Moonstruck). Casting notices in November called for a “Babe, Lady, and Star” representing her three eras, and named other characters in the piece, such as Bob Mackie, David Geffen, Gregg Allman, Robert Altman, Rob Camilletti and Sigmund Freud. It’s been a long time since I’ve looked forward to the opening of a Broadway show, but this one is Cher-approved.
