In this affecting and surprisingly funny contemporary musical, a nine-year-old girl loses her hair to leukemia, and sets off on a mythical quest to find it, creating her own reality to cope with her cancer. Her imaginary friend and a fellow patient tag along on the fantastical journey, accompanied by an upbeat pop score from the award-winning team of Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond. Dani Girl's been developed through several prestigious programs, including the Festival of New American Musicals, and the ASCAP/Disney Musical Theatre Workshop. Learn More

A uniformly excellent production of a sometimes difficult, clearly challenging--but ultimately rewarding--play. A very ambitious undertaking for community theater, but all at Unexpected Stage Company rose to--and were fully equal to--the challenge.
