If somebody is transgender they would have to consider themselves male or female... so they should decide whether they want to be called a lady or a man..... so in this case there could be no offence.
It is up to the individual how they live, but they can't expect the rest of the world to change things just because they are different!
Male and female are "binary" genders.
As I understand it there is also "transgender" or "non-binary" which is neither sex. This could be bigender or trigender, genderfluid or genderfree, genderqueer.
Faced with such complexity it's easier for a theatre to just change the wording so the show can go on.
