Hannah Gadsby's Nanette was the Netflix comedy special that launched a thousand think pieces: a deceptively mild-mannered solo show that evolved into an impassioned exploration of, among other things, the duplicities and dangers of stand-up comedy itself. In it, Gadsby even threatened that the show would be her last. Happily, she has changed her mind.

Before Gadsby became a phenomenon, the Australian comic performed Nanette in theaters around the world—including NYC's own small SoHo Playhouse. Today she revealed that she will return to the New York stage this summer for a four-week run of her new show, Douglas, at the Daryl Roth Theatre near Union Square. Named after a dog, Douglas looks at how Gadsby's life has changed since the success of Nanette, and explores the challenges that fame presents for a person on the autism spectrum.

Douglas will play will play Tuesdays through Saturdays. Tickets cost $63.50, and will be available through Ticketmaster beginning Sunday, April 14, at 10am.
