Tony Award-winner Lena Hall was among the actresses at the read-through. 

To the delight of many and surprise of few, Cher confirmed via Twitter Tuesday that there is a Broadway musical in production that will chronicle her life and be set to her iconic music catalog.

"Just got off the phone with writer and director of musical," she tweeted, "there will be performance in theatre with actors, dancers, singers - it'll be on Broadway 2018." Of course it wouldn't be Cher if the tweet wasn't peppered with emojis and caps lock.

There have been murmurs about a Cher-based musical since January, when the icon met for a read-through of the production which, according to The New York Post, will be helmed by Jason Moore (Pitch Perfect) in the director's chair. Tony Award-winner Lena Hall was among the actresses at the read-through of the musical, penned by Jersey Boys' Rick Elice, vying for a chance to play one of three Chers at various points in the singer's life.

As long as the last act of the spectacle involves the cast acting out some of her outrageous and entertaining tweets, we're sold.
