The Cher Show at Oxford’s New Theatre until this Saturday (25th February) is sure to make you feel shiny & new
Do you believe In life after love..? Well The Cher Show has the power to mend any broken or glum heart. It might even top you up with the kind of badass girl power that had us taking our sequinned 40-something selves off to Sandy’s Piano Bar to take to the mic after the show…
However much you know or don’t know about the life story of the “Goddess of Pop” Cher (born as Cherilyn Sarkisian in 1946 California) this show is a full-tilt, eye-opening inspiration.
Directed by Arlene Philips and with joyful choreography by Oti Mabuse, you can’t fail to be moved by the vibrant performances, with a show jam-packed with 35 of Cher’s biggest hits, including If I Could Turn Back Time, I Got You Babe and The Shoop Shoop Song.
The holy trinity of Millie O’Connell, Debbie Kurup & Ingrid Olivia (replacing Danielle Steers) gave dazzling performances in their turns as Cher at different stages of her long, legendary & continuing career. This is no mean feat, not least because of the sheer vocal power it takes to do this diva’s hits justice, but also to speak in Cher’s trademark low, growly southern voice throughout the show following the twists and turns of this grafter’s life. The effort this must have on those vocal cords was rewarded with standing ovations, whoops of joy and, I’m sure, many a sparkly outfit shopping spree after the show (it can’t just be me, can it?).
I can’t think of any other show that would leave you with such levels of joy, wandering out into a nippy February evening, so book your tickets now! And see you at the piano bar!
