The Diary of Anne Frank - 1997 - Broadway

Eight people, twenty-five months, one room. Thanks to the kindness of a few loyal friends and coworkers, Anne Frank and her family were able to find a brief solace from the Nazi invasions of the 1940s. It’s an amazing tale showing that courage, strength of character and generosity can help you through the toughest of times, all told through the eyes of one bright young girl who had the foresight to keep a detailed diary that has allowed her memory to live on.
