Douglas Lyons is an actor, writer, director, composer, and playwright originally hailing from New Haven, CT. Finding his song in the church led him to acting in the theatre. Which landed him on Broadway, and eventually opened his eyes to writing. As a multi-hyphenate, Douglas is drawn to telling Black and queer stories that illuminate joy. He has a soft spot in his heart for empowering children through music, and devouring gummy bears.
