The Groovy List agrees with Stormy Daniels, Kathy Griffin and Brian Sims

The Groovy List is a weekly roundup of groovy gay pop culture:

1) Groovy Gals: Stormy Daniels and Kathy Griffin
This week these two lovely ladies met up at Griffin’s show in Boston and posed for the above photo with a message to Trump.

2) Groovy Guy: Brian Sims
This week the Pennsylvania State Representative officially welcomed Mike Pence to Philadelphia (where he was attending a fundraiser).

3) Groovy Musical: The Cher Show
This week in Chicago I saw the pre-Broadway World Premiere stage production that tells the story of Cher's fabulous career. This work in progress is still in previews as director Jason Moore and book writer Rick Elice have the daunting task of featuring six decades of stardom in only two and a half hours. And despite this whirlwind overview of Cher's life - which, unfortunately, does give short shrift to some memorable songs - I had a good time. Highlights of the evening were Act 1's fun Bob Mackie number (which showcases many of his outrageous outfits), Act 2's terrific rendition of "The Beat Goes On" and the finale of "Take Me Home". The entire cast is great, but I especially enjoyed the performances of Michael Berresse (as Mr. Mackie), Emily Skinner (as Cher's mother Georgia and Lucille Ball) and the three engaging Chers - Micaela Diamond, Teal Wicks and the always amazing Stephanie J. Block. The Cher Show is definitely never boring and often quite entertaining - and if you're a fan, I think you'll go home humming one of her groovy tunes. I give it a grade of B (click here for tickets to the Chicago engagement as well as the Broadway run, which begins previews on November 1).

Below you can watch a recent ABC 7 Chicago interview with the cast and creative staff of the show.

4) Groovy Gal: Cher
The Academy Award-winning actress, whose new film, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, opens on July 20, is a guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden (in which she has to eat a cow tongue when she is unable to say one nice thing about Trump). I've also included a video from her recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show (and the story she tells is featured in The Cher Show).

5) Groovy Gal: Joy Nash
The actress discusses her new AMC series, Dietland, on AOL's BUILD Series.

6) Groovy Guy: Randy Rainbow
He performs his latest song parody, "WTF, YOU GUYS!?"

7) Groovy Carpool Karaoke with James Corden and Paul McCartney
The host of The Late Late Show heads to Liverpool for a special day with the legendary singer.

8) Groovy Comedy Sketch: "Crosswalk the Musical: Andrew Lloyd Webber Classics"
James Corden takes The Late Late Show to the London streets to showcase some of Andrew Lloyd Webber's most memorable compositions, including Evita, Phantom of the Opera, Cats and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
