More shows than ever! Each making theatre in a different, yet thoroughly engaging, way.
This is our biggest season yet, as the Douglas builds momentum as a hub for adventurous theatregoers.
Each season membership includes admission to two DouglasPlus events!
JAMIE ADKINS CIRCUS INCOGNITUS
January 15, 16, 22 and 23, 2011
A veteran of both Cirque du Soleil and Montréal’s Cirque Éloize, Adkins fuses clowning, juggling, balancing and acrobats into what the New York Times calls “infinitesimal acts of imperceptible genius.” Circus INcognitus is pure fun and wonder – a perfect show for young audiences.

The London Guardian calls it “ a dazzling theatrical experience that lets nobody off the hook” – including the audience. Without giving too much away, The Author challenges the conventions of theatre and changes your perspective as an audience member.
JUAN AND JOHN
Created and Performed by Roger Guenveur Smith
Sound and Video by Marc Anthony Thompson
May 17 to 29, 2011
The Watts Towers Project was a high point of Solomania! at the Douglas in 2006. Smith returns with an equally powerful and poetic work based on the true story of baseball legends Juan Marichal and John Roseboro and the infamous 1965 day when Marichal turned and hit Roseboro in the head with his bat.
