Tony Sheldon, who was nominated for a Tony Award for his performance in Priscilla Queen of the Desert, recently celebrated his 1,500th performance as Bernadette in productions worldwide. Here, the Tony nominee talks about hitting the milestone.

Sheldon, who performed his 1,500th performance Nov. 18, created the role of Bernadette in the first workshop of Priscilla and has starred in every production of the new musical in Australia, New Zealand, London and Toronto.

The performer received critical acclaim for his Broadway debut performance—he was nominated for 2011 Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Drama League awards and the Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical. He was awarded the Theatre World Award for Outstanding Broadway debut.

Priscilla Queen of the Desert stars Sheldon, Will Swenson (Tick/Mitzi) and Nick Adams (Adam/Felicia) as "the trio of friends on a heart-warming, uplifting adventure. [They] hop aboard a battered old bus searching for love and friendship in the middle of the Australian outback and end up finding more than they could ever have dreamed."

The musical currently plays Broadway's Palace Theatre. For more information, visit www.priscillathemusical.com.
