BWW Reviews: The New Jewish Theatre's Compelling Production of THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANKBWW Reviews: The New Jewish Theatre's Compelling Production of THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK
by Chris Gibson - Oct 15, 2014

Few stories are as poignant and compelling as THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK, and this adaptation by Wendy Kesselman (originally scripted by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett) is made even more so by enhancing the elements already present that deal with her Jewish faith and burgeoning womanhood. The current production by The New Jewish Theatre is simply heart wrenching in its exquisite and engaging execution. A wonderful cast and sensitive direction allow this true and tragic tale to blossom fully. You can't help but be moved by the events that transpire, and you'll find yourself thinking how important it is that we never forget what happened so that we make sure it is never repeated.
