Hannah Gadsby Coming to Boch Center Shubert Theatre June 19

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15 AT 10:00AM

Boston, MA (February 12, 2019) – The Boch Center and WestBeth Entertainment announced that comedian Hannah Gadsby will bring her show Douglas to the Boch Center Shubert Theatre on Wednesday, June 19, 2019 at 8:00PM as part of her first ever US tour. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, February 15 at 10:00AM.

Tasmania’s own Hannah Gadsby has come to the world’s attention through her multi-award winning stand up show Nanette, which played to sold out houses across Australia, London, Edinburgh, New York and Los Angeles before launching on Netflix in June as the first Australian Netflix Original Comedy Special and stopping the comedy world in its tracks. The overnight success of Hannah Gadsby was more than ten years in the making, with her award winning stand up shows a sellout fixture in festivals across Australia and the UK.

Who is Douglas? Well, apparently, Hannah Gadsby thinks he is the only one who can help her follow up on the trail blazed by her last show, Nanette. Gadsby is all set to take the mysterious Douglas for a trot around America.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, February 15 at 10:00AM and will be available at the Boch Center Box Office, bochcenter.org or by calling (866) 348-9738.
