I am sure that many of you would not know the name Doug Jack. But I bet you have seen his phenomenal work! Let me give you a short list…Director and choreographer for the Opening Ceremonies for the Olympics in 1992 in Barcelona, 1996 in Atlanta, 2000 in Sydney, 2002 in Salt Lake City, 2004 in Athens, 2006 in Torino. How about the Choreographer for seven Super Bowl Halftime Shows? Miami 1999, San Diego 1998, New Orleans 1997, Phoenix 1996, Minneapolis 1992, Tampa 1991 and Pasadena 1987. OK, how about Three World Cups Ceremonies? 2006 World Cup Soccer in Berlin, 2005 World Cup Rugby in Sydney, and 1994 World Cup Soccer, Orlando & Los Angeles? Oh and I forgot, he won an Emmy also. When you look at his amazing work from high above his work is truly breathtaking and larger than life. But from the ground level, all of the individual performers feel his simple role elevated to something larger and even great than himself. Well today Doug is going to take us backstage as he will recount for you a few of these extraordinary and ordinary, marvelous and miserable moments that have made up the dance of his life. As you know nothing always goes as you hope or plans and sometimes you have to sneak away from angry mobs or get kissed by David Hasselhoff! The book we will be talking about is titled, “The Back Side of Wonderful.” It is our honor to welcome to our show, Doug Jack.
