Paradise Theatre Presents THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK
by BWW News Desk - Jan 18, 2019

The Diary of Anne Frank was a specific recounting of a specific time in world history. But it wouldn't be timeless if that was all. Young Miss Frank's personal musings was about every girl growing up in the 1940s. The fact that it took place while the author was huddled in a corner attic hiding from the Gestapo is important, to be sure, but not everything about this tale. She ponders, in her advanced-for-her-age writing style, the experience of growing into a young woman. How it feels to have a first crush. How to live in a multi-generational and enforced quiet community when everything about you wants to jump and play. (more...)
