The Diary of Anne Frank
Frances Goodrich & Albert Hackett
Newly Adapted by Wendy Kesselman
(Based upon Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl)
|Roneet Aliza Rahamim (Anne) and Cast of "The Diary of Anne Frank"|
For a while, we forget the family’s eventual demise as we settle down to watch The Diary of Anne Frank emerge from the pages on which the Anne in front of us diligently writes. Palo Alto Players presents the 1955 Pulitzer Prize for Drama by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett -- further adapted in 1977 after more of Anne’s original diary was published by Wendy Kesselman -- in a superbly directed production and with an ensemble of actors who pull us into their individual and collective stories in ways that shake us to our very core.
