Douglas A. Pagliotti (1958 - September 27, 1994)

Douglas A. Pagliotti was a production stage manager for the Old Globe Theater in San Diego. He died on September 27, 1994, at his home. He was 36 and lived in San Diego.

The cause was AIDS, said Will Roberson, his companion.

Mr. Pagliotti, a native of Santa Barbara, Calif., was a graduate of the Pacific Conservatory of Performing Arts in Santa Monica, Calif., and of Webster College in St. Louis. Before the Globe, he worked at the Denver Center Theater Company, the St. Louis Repertory Theater, the Huntington Theater Company in Boston and the Hartford Stage.

At the Old Globe, which he joined in 1980, he managed more than 150 productions, including the world premieres of Neil Simon's "Rumors," Stephen Sondheim's "Into the Woods" and A. R. Gurney's "Cocktail Hour." He was production stage manager of the Globe's revival of "Damn Yankees," which moved on to Broadway.

The Hunter Within by Viki Lyn
Publisher: Loose Id LLC (October 25, 2011)
Amazon Kindle: The Hunter Within

Returning veteran Jack is shocked to learn his wife is engaged to another man. She believes Jack died during the war and has no idea he was altered into a soldier of superhuman powers to fight supernatural beings. Part of him wants to stay dead in her eyes and let her live her life, but part wants to tell Alice the truth. Jack deeply wants his old life back, to be normal again. Maybe Alice can save him from his crazy life and his newly awakened sexual need for men; especially his burning passion for a shape-shifter who claimed his body and now wants his heart.

Shape-shifter Antoine Fortescue travels to New York City to find out why Jack went AWOL. What he discovers disturbs him. Jack has traveled to California to spy on his wife’s fiancé. Is he going to confront Alice with the truth he is alive? And try to get her back? Or the real truth, that he is gay? Jack may yearn for a "normal" life, but Antoine will stop at nothing to capture Jack’s heart.
