The Gay Internet heaved a collective gasp earlier this week when Cher announced she's been working on a musical through the closest thing we have to Gabriel's horn, her Twitter account:

The Rick in question is Rick Elice, the Tony-nominated co-librettist of Jersey Boys. But don't start turning back time, Elice says there's nothing to report quite yet.

"The fact is, we're just getting started so I don't think there's a story for you yet," he told Playbill. "No answers at this point, only questions."

Elice is also busy working on a musical based on Whitney Houston's life--thank god--so who's to know when a cavalcade of Chers will finally ride through the theater on horseback belintg out "Half Breed." The legend and Oscar winner--never forget--first announced a musical featuring her pop hits back in 2012, but this is the first we're hearing about it since then.

Elice has a lot to live up to, though. After all, Cher's last musical gave us one of the greatest moments in cinematic history:
