Music icon Cher is bringing a musical version of her life story to Broadway next year, the singer has announced.

“Just got off phone w/Writer & Director of musical,” she wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

“There Will be performance in THEATRE WITH ACTORS,DANCERS,SINGERS?? IT’ll be ON BROADWAY 2018.”

The production will be a musical based on the 71-year-old entertainer’s life and six-decade career, according to performing arts publication Playbill.

A casting notice last November dropped a few hints about the plot of the show.

“In this production, the characters of Babe, Lady, and Star represent Cher at different moments of her life — starting as a teenager who falls for Sonny Bono (Babe), a successful music star navigating the challenges of the entertainment industry (Lady) and the lady we know today with a fascinating wealth of life experience, successes, and failures (Star),” the notice said.

“Aside from Babe, Lady, Star, Sonny Bono, and Georgia, other roles may be paired together to have the actors double or triple up on the roles.”

Tony award-winning “Jersey Boys” writer Rick Elice and Pitch Perfect director Jason Moore are also involved in the musical that will feature Cher hits “I Got You Babe,” “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves,” “Take Me Home,” “Believe” and “If I Could Turn Back Time.”

Cher is currently in between stints of her “Classic Cher” Las Vegas residency and sent Australian fans into a frenzy last month with word that she’s also hoping to tour Australia and New Zealand next year.
