Nigel Bennett as a singing transexual?

According to the Toronto Star Nigel has been offered one of the leads in the Toronto staging of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. as Bernadette. Terence Stamp played the role in the movie version. How utterly fantastic is that! I remember reading somewhere a while back about him auditioning but for the life of me I can't remember where.

But Priscilla Queen of the Desert is still in the mix and supposedly offers have been made for the leading roles. The Toronto Star has learned that two of them might very well be going to Nova Scotia-based actor Nigel Bennett (best known for his work on Forever Knight) in the role first created by Terence Stamp, and to Peter Deiwick (veteran of numerous Mirvish shows from Mamma Mia! through We Will Rock You) in the part originally played by Guy Pearce.

The musical was a big hit in Australia back in 2006 and the show's director will be on hand for the North American premiere in Toronto. It's set to open this Fall.
