Like "Summer," the Broadway hit about singer Donna Summer that opened in April, "The Cher Show" will feature three actresses playing the pop diva and Oscar winner at various stages of her life. In addition to featuring 35 of the singer's hits, a highlight of "The Cher Show" is sure to be the costumes by Bob Mackie, who has been designing Cher's glitzy outfits for more than four decades.
