Chaz Bono has starred in his own documentary ("Becoming Chaz"), appeared on reality TV (ABC's "Dancing With the Stars") and authored a book ("Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man"). He's now expanded his resume by appearing onstage in a short musical parody of the cult movie "Road House" at the Celebration Theatre near West Hollywood.
"Road House: The Rock Opera" is a short -- about a half-hour long -- send-up of the 1989 Patrick Swayze movie. Bono plays the role of Tinker, originally played by actor John Young. A spokesperson for the stage production said that Bono sings in the show. (Bono is the son of singers Sonny Bono and Cher.)
Bono began performances a week ago and is scheduled to appear in the show on April 5, 6, 12, 13, 19 and 20. The show begins at 10:30 p.m.
"Road House" is a part of a series called "30 Minute Musicals," which consists of musical parodies of famous (and infamous) movies. Past productions include send-ups of "Showgirls," "Jurassic Park" and "Top Gun."
Bono publicly came out as transgendered in 2009.
