Hannah Gadsby’s tenth solo show was Nanette. It did alright.
Nanette took out the top prizes at the Melbourne and Edinburgh festivals before sitting down in New York and dropping a Netflix special last year that started a global conversation that continues today. It even earned Hannah an Emmy and a Peabody.
While Nanette was a random barista, Douglas is a very specific Dog, and the only thing they have in common is they’ve inspired Hannah to put pen to paper and turn out a show you couldn’t possibly expect.
Hannah found her voice with Nanette and with Douglas she’s using it. The stand-up stage has been Hannah’s home for more than a decade, and the last couple of years have given her a few very new ideas to think and talk about in her first ever US tour.
Douglas had its world premiere in Melbourne on March 27, 2019 before embarking on a US tour, kicking off in San Francisco and wrapping with a run in New York City which was extended twice. The tour went on to the UK, Europe and back to Australia and now it is finally Canada’s turn to meet Douglas with shows in Toronto and Vancouver in 2020.
No cellphones, cameras or recording devices will be allowed at Hannah Gadsby’s show. Upon arrival, all phones and smart watches will be secured in Yondr pouches that will be unlocked at the end of the show. Guests maintain possession of their phones throughout the night, and if needed, may access their phones at designated Yondr unlocking stations in the lobby. Anyone caught with a cellphone in the venue will be immediately ejected. We appreciate your cooperation in creating a phone-free viewing experience.
