In 2020, a petition expressing “disappointment” over the casting of Sheridan in the lead part of Hedwig, who many people believe to be a transgender character, and the absence of LGBTQ inclusion in the show caused the Australian production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch to be postponed.
Daya Czepanski, David Campbell, and Michaela Banas, among others, wrote an open letter to the Sydney Festival outlining the importance of trans representation when portraying trans characters. Zoe Terakes published the letter on Instagram.
The letter also demanded that Sheridan be recast because he admitted to liking both men and women but avoided labeling his sexual orientation.
John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask, the American writers of Hedwig, responded to the petition with a statement claiming that they did not think Hedwig was transgender and that anyone could perform the part; however, the Australian producers, Showtune Productions, canceled the program.
Sheridan made his stage debut with Hughman at the Adelaide Fringe in March 2021. In Back to the Rafters, an Amazon Prime Video remake of Packed to the Rafters, Sheridan played Ben Rafter once more.
