Flashback Friday: When Cher Became the Star (and Only Star) of West Side Story
West Side Story is coming back to Broadway, and The Cher Show is arriving this fall.
West Side Story is coming back to Broadway late next year. This year, Cher's life story will be told on the Great White Way in The Cher Show. What do the two have in common? On the surface, nothing. But in 1978, Cher did a West Side Story medley in her aptly named television special, Cher...Special. The 15-minute segment features Cher playing all of the roles. That's right. All the roles.
