The singer has revealed that she is working on a Broadway show based on her life story and using her songs – and that she will be played by three different actors
  
  

Three actors could play Cher after the singer revealed that an inventive musical based on her life was being developed for the stage.

Earlier this week, the 66-year-old singer took to Twitter to reveal that she was working with producers to write a musical that uses her songs to tell her life story. While the planned timescale remains unclear, the singer said that the production is being developed with Broadway in mind.

"Prod r trying to write musical of my life at the moment! Its very interesting idea," Cher wrote on her Twitter feed.

She added: "Its VERY SLOW PROCESS! Been working on it quite a while now [sic]."

Currently, the musical focuses on three stages of the singer's life, with a different actor playing her in each part. One actor will portray her before she met Sonny Bono; another after the couple separated through to her Believe tour in 1999, and a third will play the singer in the present day. "They all 3 talk 2 each other &Sing 2gether," Cher tweeted.

The singer also stressed her own involvement: "I'm help. 2 write cause I was there and know stories that no1 knows but me."

However, her fans shouldn't get too excited too early, as her representatives told Access Hollywood that any "Broadway show is a long way off".
