Hannah Gadsby adds Off-Broadway dates to 'Douglas' show

By Annie Martin

July 29 (UPI) -- Douglas star Hannah Gadsby has added more Off-Broadway dates to the show.

The 41-year-old Australian comedian announced in a tweet Monday she will extend the Off-Broadway run of Douglas, her new stand-up comedy show, into September.


"Pretty chuffed about the opening week for Douglas in NYC... so chuffed in fact that I've added two more weeks to the run! Get amongst it... if you want. (Those flowers?! Why?)," she wrote.

Douglas will now run through Sept. 7 at the Daryl Roth Theatre in New York, according to Gadsby's website. Gadsby was initially slated to perform July 23-Aug. 17, and previously extended the show through Aug. 24.

Gadsby will also take Douglas on a new world tour. The venture begins Oct. 18 in Reykjavik, Iceland, and ends Feb. 3 in Wellington, New Zealand.

Gadsby is best known for the stand-up show Nanette, which debuted as a Netflix special in June 2018. Douglas takes its name from Gadsby's beloved dog, and is inspired in part by the success of Nanette. It will premiere on Netflix in 2020.
