So many female performers and creatives currently at the top of their game in a male-centric world. This makes The Cher Show an extra special, female empowering watch.
The premise sees Cher (Debbie Kurup) about to go onstage for her farewell tour. Facing a crisis of confidence the singer addresses her younger selves (Danielle Steers and Millie O’Connell), delving into her past (or, ahem, wanting to ‘Turn Back Time’).
Full of feathers and factoids, hit songs and head dresses, The Cher Show is diverting, if not particularly enlightening, entertainment.
If you are looking for a feel-good film to take at face value and a good unashamed sing-along – Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again fits that bill. There are also many laugh-out-loud moments and you might spot one or two members of Abba, keep your eyes peeled.
I was lucky enough to see an early screening of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again last week and I thought it was fricking fantastic.
