Anyone who has ever read The Diary of Anne Frank remembers that heartstopping moment when you turned the last page … and realized there was nothing else there. Shortly after its publication, a stage adaptation was created by Albert Hackett and Frances and Frances Goodrich. That play has been performed countless times around the world. One of the most monumental works of art ever created comes alive in a breathtaking new staging.
