"Danny was absolutely PHENOMENAL!!! He was THE MAD HATTER in voice, actions, and phrases. Even his dancing was true to Johnny Depp's character and the Alice in Wonderland movie. The teenagers loved him because he was truly authentic as Johnny Depp. Kids at my daughter's school are still raving about the Sweet 16 ALICE IN WONDERLAND TEA PARTY two weeks later and saying it was the best party ever. My daughter had a blast. We could not have hired a better actor! You are the BEST Danny! We will use you again and again."- Margaret Acker
