FORMER Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears will appear on stage in a new LA production of Martin Sherman’s play Bent.
Shears plays the role of a drag queen and nightclub owner Greta.
“It’s challenging on a lot of levels,” Shears said in an interview with The Advocate.
“I’ve never really done drag before. It’s new for me in quite a few different ways. And the learning curve has been really crazy, you know, but it’s been awesome, because everybody’s — like, all my fellow cast members — have just been really, really, really supportive.”
Bent officially opens July 26 at LA’s Center Theater.
