The Rep Does It Again

"The Diary of Anne Frank" finished off our weekend of plays. Sunday night we were at the Repertory Theater for the last night of this production. As previously hinted at by a friend of mine, the set was amazing, completely filling the stage with two plus stories of the building where the Franks took refuge. Every play we have seen at the Rep this season has had a creative set.

The cast was great, particularly Lauren Orkus in the role of Anne Frank. The new adaptation of the story moved at a nice pace, yet managed to still capture the essence of the two years the families spent hiding in the annex. Bravo, Rep!

That sounds like a good play to see. Well it sounds like you're weekend was very cultural anyway!

Oh, I'm glad it was done tastefully. What girl doesn't remember reading Anne's diary for the first time.....
