Rabbit Hole

Who's Who in the Cast?

Dani Vien (Becca):

 

Dani Vien (Becca): Growing up in the city of Chicago, Dani found her love for arts at an early age. She would perform for her family at home and soon gain recognition for writing and acting in school. She made her first major stage debut in college performing in the monologue series, “That takes Ovaries”. “I love the free expression and compassion of acting. The more I step in the shoes of others, the better I walk in my own.” Thank you Tony for this wonderful opportunity. Thank you to my castmates, friends and family for all of your support. A special thank you to my children Leeangelo, Leeyah, and Leema for inspiring me to do what I love. I’d like to dedicate this performance to all parents of children big and small, alive or resting. God bless. IG: Danivien
