If you found yourself face to face with death, how would you respond? Off-Broadway musical Dani Girl is starting its series of shows this Friday, and here are 3 reasons why you should reserve a ticket or two now:

  1. Dani Girl is one of the best ways to keep yourself warm this rainy season. Tagged as "a musical that's good for the soul," it chronicles 9-year-old Dani Lyons's imaginary journey—with her guardian angel Raph, her film-obsessed roommate Marty, and her teddy bear Mr. Fritz—to get back her hair after losing it to chemo, and to find the answer to the question, "Why is cancer?"

  2. It is a thought-provoking musical by Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond—winners of the 2010 Jonathan Larson Grant and the first recipients of the Lorenz Hart Award. This hilarious and heartbreaking musical explores the timeless theme of life in the face of death, hope amidst despair, and the power of childlike imagination.

  3. It is The Sandbox Collective's maiden production. The Sandbox Collective is a Manila-based performing arts theater collective commited to making theater arts accessible for the millenials, and to bring it back to theater lovers who have long given up on it. It was founded by director Toff de Venecia (whose credits include the Ateneo Blue Repertory's Little Shop of Horrors for which he was nominated by Broadway World Philippines as Best Director, 9 Works Theatrical's You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown, among others), with the help of  9 Works Theatrical's Anna Santamaria.

Dani Girl runs from July 11-27 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati City. For more information, you may visit www.thesandboxcollective.com.
