LONDON THEATRE

Titanic

'As Charles Clarke, the good-looking shop-keeper who dares to love above his station, Douglas Hansell is flawless; as the voyage starts the ecstasy of his impending marriage is clear, then his self-doubts rise up to imperil his happiness, then the iceberg and his desperation to get his adored Lady Caroline to safety. Hansell makes the character whole and vulnerable; the look of ashen despair as he loses his lover is as affecting as any other aspect of the production.'

AUSTRALIAN STAGE

Come From Away

"The ensemble cast is quite extraordinary...and Douglas Hansell keeps the pace of the narrative humming without ever missing a beat and the skill of these performers is truly remarkable."

STAGE NOISE

The Wharf Revue

'As Barnaby Joyce, specially-returned-from-the-UK Hansell somehow manages to transform his handsome face into an approximation of a beet-red football while singing a good ol’ Country song.'

THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

A Doll's House

'Douglas Hansell brings a measure of pathos as Torvald; he might be pompous and patronising but his total bemusement when Nora leaves makes it impossible for us to hate him.'

LONDON THEATRE

Thirty-Three

'Doug Hansell is at his best when he breaks through his stoic exterior as Joshua.'

THE DAILY TELEGRAPH

The Wharf Revue

'Hansell not only sings and dances up a storm, but does an uncannily good impression too, whether as “Christopher Robin” Pyne saying his evening prayers for the party, or Scott Morrison taking his political policies home to bed with his wife.'

AUSTRALIAN STAGE

Freud's Last Season

'Douglas Hansell is intriguing as the younger Lewis, not yet the famous creator of Narnia, portraying a man both on the defensive yet politely assured of his own convictions. Hansell manages to convey this characteristic without arrogance but rather nuanced self-doubt.'
