In its New York debut, readers may recall our review from February 2020.

“’Happy Birthday Doug’ the Funniest Party in Town” 

 Don’t believe us?

The New York Times hailed the show “a laugh-out-loud funny social sendup” and heralded Droege’s “supercharged performance.” The Daily Beast calls it “a very funny, pointed celebration” and praised “Droege’s vivid compendium of characters.”

Get yourself to the party cuz…

“Tonight, Doug turns 41. His favorite, and least favorite, gay men have made the invite list: friends, exes, nightmares, tricks, and even a ghost. Happy Birthday Doug is a wicked and wild hour-long celebration of modern gay culture, with tons of wine.”
