Research Interests

Directing and Acting; Dr. Douglas has enjoyed a 40-year career as an actor in professional theatre, film and television. He created a solo performance piece titled “A Shadow Among Strangers: Performing the Life and Works of Edgar Allan Poe,” which he researched, wrote, designed, directed, and performs. The piece explores the intersections between Poe’s life and significant works—what compelled him to live a life of self-destruction and romantic dreams? Douglas’ credits include Broadway, Off-Broadway, regional theatre, film, television, and a range of voice-acting including the lead villain “Ocean Master” for the interactive video game “Aquaman.”
