Grammy Winner, Winfield International Fingerstyle Guitar Champion
Aurora, IL - May 3 - June 2, 2019
In May 2019 Doug played guitar as a member of the ensemble of "August Rush - The Musical!" This Broadway-produced show did a test run in Aurora, IL (outside Chicago) from May 3 to June 2. It's based on the movie of the same name, with an all new score by Mark Mancina (who wrote the music for the film), and is directed by Tony-Award winning John Doyle! All the music will be produced onstage by the 16 member cast.
Whether it goes to Broadway is still yet to be announced! If it does, Doug will be living in NYC playing the show on Broadway. The show is amazing and not to be missed if it runs on Broadway.
DOUG SMITH TO PLAY ON BROADWAY
Doug Smith fans all loved seeing Doug perform in the Hollywood movie August Rush, starring Robin Williams. Doug had some great full-screen shots of his flying fingers in the closing scene of the movie. Now the movie version has been taken to the next level as a Broadway-produced musical. All the musicians are part of the show. If the debute in Chicago is a success, it will then go to Broadway! Don't miss your chance to see Doug perform in this great Musical!
