NYT Critic's Pick “Is Hannah Gadsby’s ‘Douglas’ Stand-Up? Theater? Yes, Please. A follow-up to the startling and divisive ‘Nanette’ is just as startling and probably just as divisive.”

“While ‘Douglas’ is, indeed, a different piece than ‘Nanette’ (which she admits caused a lot of haters to hate), it's anything but a dog of a show. Instead, I would call it must-see theater!”
