Christian Douglas BIO

Christian Douglas is a multifaceted singer, songwriter and theater performer. Like flipping a switch he can go from performing “Nessun Dorma” for the President of Italy at the White House to appearing as Jack Kelly in Newsies, to belting "Uptown Funk" with a wedding band and singing his soulful original music. Christian’s diverse vocal skills have made him a sought-after performer in the D.C. area, appearing in musicals and cabarets at Arena Stage and Signature Theatre, as well as in nationally-televised concerts with the American Pops Orchestra.

Christian discovered his love of music as a young child through the piano and later through his voice in middle school choir. Around the same time, he began to explore the world of songwriting, putting his youthful emotions into written verse and searching the keys for the harmonies and melodies that would become the seeds for his first songs. His love of songwriting has been an artistic thread and consistent companion, alongside his study and focus on vocal and theatrical performance. He studied classical singing at the University of Maryland and, upon graduating, he auditioned and won a spot as a tenor in the United States Army Chorus, where he spent four years singing for dignitaries, presidents and foreign leaders.

Though classically-trained, Christian has been rewarded for his pursuit and love of other vocal styles. In 2018 he was awarded one of the top prizes in the prestigious, international Lotte Lenya Vocal Competition and was a finalist in the American Traditions Vocal Competition the following year. In 2019, as he prepared to leave the Army, Christian began to audition for musical theater productions in the D.C. area, quickly garnering attention from Tony Award-winning regional theaters like Arena Stage and Signature Theatre. In his first professional production, he understudied and went on as the leading role of Jack Kelly in Newsies at Arena Stage. He was then featured in the world premiere production of Gun & Powder at Signature Theatre, with the acclaimed Broadway director Robert O’Hara. Christian is currently featured in Signature Theatre’s 2020-2021 digital season in the Signature Vinyl concert and in the Off-Broadway hit, Midnight at the Never Get, premiering in April 2021.

In recent years, Christian has come into his own as a singer-songwriter. In 2018 he released his debut EP of original music, Lonely Paradise, and in 2019 he was selected as a featured Artist-in-Residence at Strathmore Music Center. As part of this residency, he curated two full-length concerts of original music and was commissioned to premiere a new body of work.

Christian will soon release his first full-length album, Inside Voice, which features a melting pot of styles, genres and sounds to reflect how far our hearts and minds can travel when our physical bodies are stuck inside. The recording was created during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Review: MOULIN ROUGE! at Dr. Phillips Center Is Silly But Sumptuous

I can’t recall seeing a single show on the national touring circuit with costumes, lighting, and scenic design as sumptuous as those in Moulin Rouge!. Yes, the show is scaled down from its eye-popping, Tony-winning 2019 Broadway production (still running in New York), but as touring productions go, this one’s exceptionally pleasing to the eye...

Moulin Rouge! The Musical, debuted in Boston in 2018, and seems like an incredibly logical adaptation of a wildly successful musical film.  The stage version, showing at PPAC through December 31, hews very closely to the film in terms of plot and the bigger musical numbers, but also adds some new songs and showcases some exceptional sets and lighting that really make this production feel new on the stage.  While jukebox musicals can feel tedious, this is a refreshing re-envisioning that sparkles with well-chosen songs and outstanding vocal performances.

Review: MOULIN ROUGE THE MUSICAL at The Hippodrome

I remember trying to watch Moulin Rouge when the movie came out in 2001 and only getting about halfway through it. I have to confess I found the story rather trite and entirely predictable, only elevated by the inclusion of lots of catchy pop songs. So I was delightfully surprised when I saw the current iteration of this piece as a Broadway musical. Here I was all set to cast my weary, cynical eye on one more story of the ‘ho with a deadly disease (they do seem to be disproportionately prone to tuberculosis), but I was thoroughly entertained by this dazzling, dizzying, diamond of a show.
