During her 50-plus-year fascinating career, Cher became an icon in the entertainment world as a singer, actress and host of a variety TV, and all of that is featured in the Oriental Theatre production of The Cher Show through July 15. The show highlights several memorable events in the entertainer's life from the early days with husband Sonny Bono to her successes that made her an Oscar, Emmy and Grammy Award-winner. The production includes 30 songs––ranging from "I Got You Babe" to the late-in-her-career hit "Believe"––and the Bob Mackie gowns and sequins that were part of  her signature look.
