16 Law Girl

Danni Chu

What position do you have in Law Show this year? 

Nicki Minaj. I feel like I was born to play this role.

What made you decide to sign up for Law Show? 

I was actually going to be a dancer but I tore my ACL over the summer so I picked acting instead. It ended up okay though, tearing my ACL was the best thing that ever happened to me… well… maybe not the best thing, but acting was definitely a great choice!

Do you have any background in theatre or music? 

I’ve actually played the violin for 19 years, but I wanted to do something different. I’ve never acted before so this was definitely a new experience! Well actually, I lied. I acted in a school play once in grade 6. This is way better though.

What is the best part of being on the Law Show team so far? 

Honestly, watching how funny and talented everyone in the Faculty of Law is! Also seeing how much everyone else loves puns. I’m home.

Any surprising/impressive/show-stopping talents you noticed from your fellow cast mates that we should be watching for?

I’m going to be totally creepy right now because I haven’t officially introduced myself to this person yet, but every one of Jeff O’Brien’s scenes kill me every single time. His Bob McKenzie and Blackbeard roles are probably the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. I’ve seen them every other Sunday since October but I’m still always in stitches. Honestly though, I’m so impressed everyone is so funny all the time. Makes me feel a little inadequate actually.

This year the theme is “Alawdin”, any suggestions for next year’s theme?

Mary Law-puns? Breaking Blawd? Mad Men. I dunno, I’m bad at this. This is why I’m an actor not a writer.

What position do you have in Law Show this year? 

I’m one of the singers.

What made you decide to sign up for Law Show? 

I love musical theatre, but I had resigned myself to the fact that I’d be too busy for it during law school. During orientation, I heard Adeel describe Law Show and instantly decided to sign up.

Do you have any background in theatre or music? 

I’ve been involved in numerous musical theatre productions, both as an actor and as an acting coach for high school students. Favourite recent roles have included the Phantom (The Phantom of the Opera) and Charles Clarke (Titanic).

What is the best part of being on the Law Show team so far? 

Without a doubt it is getting to know the various different cast members. While there are many enjoyable elements of this production, the people win, hands down.

Any surprising/impressive/show-stopping talents you noticed from your fellow cast mates that we should be watching for?

My gut reaction is Michael’s unreal bass voice – I get chills when he hits some of his lowest notes. Maybe as a tenor I’m just jealous… The tap dance in one of the numbers is also a highlight that people should watch for.

This year the theme is “Alawdin”, any suggestions for next year’s theme?

I don’t know what they’ve done before, but going strictly on titles, I’d recommend the “The Lawyn King” or “Mulawn” if people want to stick with Disney, or else “Jurist Boys” (Jersey Boys), “Man of Law Mancha” (Man of La Mancha), or “the Phantom of the Law-pera” if they wanted to venture into musicals.
