Dani Girl

Silver Spring

When Dani, a precocious nine year old, loses her hair to leukemia, she embarks on a magical journey to get it back--along with her imaginary friend Raph and fellow patient Marty. Simultaneously hilarious and heartbreaking, Dani Girl is an inspirational tale of life in the face of death, hope in the face of despair, and the indomitable power of the human imagination. With music by Michael Kooman, and book/lyrics by Christopher Dimond, Dani Girl has been developed at the Kennedy Center, American Conservatory Theater, the Festival of New American Musicals, and the ASCAP/Disney Musical Theatre Workshop.
