Nearly 75 years ago, a young girl named Anne Frank received a blank diary for her 13th birthday.  Today, the humor, strength, and innate goodness of Anne Frank continue to shine forth from her words—inspiring readers and audiences of all ages. In her adaptation, Wendy Kesselman restored more of the original content of Anne Frank’s diary, including references to Judaism and instances exemplifying Anne’s behavior as a teenager as well as her frustrations with her sister and mother. This unforgettable and powerful story will come to life for a new generation this fall.  

The extended run of The Diary of Anne Frank also features numerous school-time matinees for school groups.  Tickets for school-time performances are $17.
