Where Is Chaz In “The Cher Show”?

My friend Michael Musto saw Broadway’s “The Cher Show” and writes: ‘While Chas Bono is represented in the show—as a baby and also referenced as a growing child, who Cher wishes Sonny would let her spend more time with—you never learn that Chas came out as a lesbian and later transitioned as Chaz. Is Broadway trying to eradicate trans existence, like Trump is? I asked Chaz’s publicist why Chaz has such low visibility in the show and he replied, “No idea.” I also asked a spokesperson for the production for a comment, and she replied, “The creative team behind The Cher Show feel it is Chaz’s story to tell.”
