Dani Girl

In this witty and touching contemporary musical, by the award-winning team of Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond, a precocious 9 year old is hospitalized when her leukemia comes out of remission. With a morbid imagination, she attempts to find an answer to the bewildering question, “Why is Cancer?” Dani, her imaginary friend Raph, and a fellow cancer patient Marty discover the secrets to life as well as death in this touching, witty new musical.  Directed by Christopher Goodrich.  Randolph Road Theater, Silver Spring.  July 17 through August 10, 2014.

Danny Boy

In this NYC Fringe Audience Favorite Award-winning comedy, Danny is a typical, career-oriented New Yorker except for the fact that he is a little person.  Playwright Marc Goldsmith takes us inside the vantage point of someone quite small who must navigate through romance, a career, his family and friends, all while confronting his own insecurities about measuring up.  Directed by Christopher Goodrich.  Randolph Road Theater.  October 16 to 26, 2014.

All performances will take place at:

Randolph Road Theater 4010 Randolph Road Silver Spring, MD 20902
