The Broadway bound The Cher Show just experienced a crazy day for the final performance of its world premiere out of tryout in Chicago a few hours ago. Apparently, there was no full length final closing show.
A technical problem occurred moments before the show began at the Windy City’s Oriental Theatre. 2 time Tony nominee Stephanie J. Block (who plays the Diva era of “Cher” known as “Lady”) and some of the producers took center stage to address the issue and announce the final performance was cancelled. However to not let the audience down, the entire cast changed out of costume into their casual clothing and performed a mini concert of 4 songs from the show for the audience.
THE CHER SHOW is set to head its way back to New York City to gear up for its official Broadway Debut this Fall. Those GYPSIES, TRAMPS, & THIEVES will be making their way into the Neil Simon Theatre, Previews are set to begin November 1st, 2018 and Opening Night set for December 3rd, 2018.
So sorry for the entire cast, crew, musicians, and creative team to not experience a full final closing performance of its Pre-Broadway tryout.
BroadwayWorld has learned that The Cher Show cancelled its final performance in Chicago, which was set for today, due to a technical issue. Multiple reports on social media state that a mini concert was performed in lieu of the full production, including 4 songs.
