Douglas has seen much of the world as Piano Player / Narrator in the second-ever cast of Billy Bishop Goes to War, including stops on-and-off-Broadway, in Bermuda, and Berlin. He has even played The Penis in the musical Health.
With more than 1,000 performances as Larry in Angry Housewives, he received a Jessie Award for outstanding musical direction.
