Danni outside StEx in london, September 2000

Danni is one of the most rewarding performers to watch. She conveys a tremendous ammount of energy in her performance, and a sense of such joy in what she's doing, it is impossible not to smile while she's onstage. Her characterisation for Pearl is particularly endearing- her Pearl is a sweet innocent (and maybe not too bright) girl, who doesn't want to hurt anyone but ends up unable to make everyone happy, so she is easily lead by the stronger personalities of Greaseball and Electra. She cares about her friends but doesn't seem to realise how much she hurts them. This makes her Pearl much more likable than some.
As Ashley, Danni just bounced! She had so much energy, she was almost never still. She was constantly improvising and interacting with other characters, one of the most interesting people onstage.
Personally I think she looks better in the curly london Pearl wig than the straight german one.
