Now it’s history; once, it was a young girl’s life. The Diary of Anne Frank is such a literary landmark that it’s easy to forget how it started out: as the personal journal of a young girl striving to become a woman. Written while she, her family, and four others hid from Nazis in Amsterdam in the early 1940s, Anne Frank’s diary has stood for generations as a tribute to the human spirit. The winner of the Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award, Critics Circle Award and many other honors, The Diary of Anne Frank was adapted for the stage by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett from the book ‘Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl’ edited by Otto Frank. Wendy Kesselman provided a new adaptation of the Goodrich and Hackett play in 1997.
