Every relationship tells a story -- even those that don't last. Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (Parade, 13), this two-person tale chronicles the marriage between an up-and-coming New York novelist and a struggling actress. Told entirely through exuberant and heartrending songs, it's the story of the couple's five-year relationship, from the first thrilling pangs of new love to their final, painful separation. However, there's a twist: Jamie relives the relationship from beginning to end, while Cathy relates their story in reverse, from end to beginning. Their "times" intersect only once, signaled by a poignant duet on their wedding day. It's a stirring and emotional story that's been staged across the U.S. and internationally since its Chicago premiere in 2001. Learn More

This production of "The Diary of Anne Frank" was outstanding. All of the characters did an excellent job. Rachel Redleaf, the young actress who played Anne, did an especially remarkable job capturing the essence of Anne. This important story needs to be shared with the new generation. I encourage parents to attend this show with their adolescent children.

This was one of the best plays that I've ever seen - except for Broadway musicals lol. My husband and two daughters (ages 12 & 14) atteneded with me. I cried and there was never a lagging moment in this show. Great cast. I highly recommend it.
The Diary of Anne Frank
A riveting and dramatic play about a Jewish family hiding from the Gestapo in war-torn Amsterdam. For two years the family and others lived in a cramped attic fearful of being discovered. This story is all the more compelling given its true account as told by 13-year-old Anne.
