Meet Adriana

Hello! I'm ADRIANA DOUZOS.

 

I'm a senior-level communications strategist with more than 15 years of industry expertise.

 

Since launching The PR CANVAS in 2019, I had the great honor to work with Oprah Winfrey's and WW CEO Mindy Grossman's leadership team on Oprah's 2020 Vision: Your Life in Focus — the sold-out, live arena stage tour.

One of my other career standouts was leading the 2018 Broadway premiere of Head Over Heels, featuring the music of female rock icons THE GO-GO's. I worked closely with original band members Charlotte Caffey, Belinda Carlisle, Gina Schock, Kathy Valentine and Jane Wiedlin on features in The New York Times, CBS Sunday Morning, People, Associated Press, SiriusXM Radio, Los Angeles Times and more.

MY CAREER CANVAS

Previously, I led the 12-time, Tony-nominated Broadway production of Nickelodeon's The SpongeBob Musical at top theatrical press agency, Boneau/Bryan-Brown.

I served as PR director for RKP Media, overseeing new business development and home entertainment DVD campaigns including Logan starring Hugh Jackman, Jordan Peele’s Get Out and various HBO series ("Game of Thrones," "Veep," "Big Little Lies," "Insecure").

 

I was senior publicist at Polk & Co., handling project campaign work for FOX-TV's “Grease Live!,” Paramount Pictures release of Florence Foster Jenkins starring Meryl Streep, the opening of A.R.T./New York Theatres, and led the Broadway for Orlando all-star benefit recording of "What the World Needs Now is Love," featuring Sara Bareilles, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lin-Manuel Miranda and more.

 

Notable Broadway shows include Disaster! the Musical; Anastasia; In Transit, the a cappella musical written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez; Julius Caesar, starring Denzel Washington; the Tony-nominated British play Frozen, starring Swoosie Kurtz and Brían F. O'Byrne; and Disney’s stage productions of The Lion King, Mary Poppins, The Little Mermaid and Elton John & Tim Rice's Aida.

 

I had the privilege of working closely with the nonprofit organization DKMS and the cast of The Lion King on its "Get Swabbed" bone marrow donor campaign to raise awareness of childhood blood cancers, in support of the late child actor, Shannon Tavarez.

 

Other career highlights include senior PR & social media manager for the labor union Actors' Equity Association; Neil LaBute's acclaimed plays for MCC Theater: Fat Pig and The Mercy Seat (starring Sigourney Weaver and Liev Schreiber); the Tony Award-winning revival of 42nd Street; and the 2000 revival of The Music Man, starring Craig Bierko and later, Eric McCormack, in the title role.

In New York, additional agency experience includes Full Picture PR, Michael Kaminer Public Relations and Ruder Finn, where I started my career in 1997.
