Lisa is completely convincing as Cher with every aspect of playing Cher down pat including her singing and speaking voice, the walk, the talk, the costumes, the makeup, and the mannerisms.
In addition, the show incorporates a live band, LED walls, video, multiple costume changes, dynamic dialogue, humor, and fun audience participation. You can expect to hear Cher’s hits spanning from the 60’s to now including: I Got You Babe, Gypsies Tramps and Thieves, I Found Someone, If I Could Turn Back Time, songs from ABBA and so much more.
The show has been met with incredible reviews, multiple sell-outs, and standing ovations.

Her original music plays on radio today.
