In celebration of what would have been Anne Frank's 90th birthday this June, the Simon Wiesenthal Center presents a unique play that reframes Anne's story through an unconventional lens. In this new adaptation of the immortal Holocaust story, 13 year-old Anne Frank imagines her life as a young woman — safe in a post-war world. When she meets a publisher who expresses interest in her story, Anne looks back on the two years she spent hidden away with her family during the Nazi regime. This innovative production eschews traditional sets and costumes to place the audience and actors on the same dramatic plane as the characters — all real people under real circumstances — fighting for their lives, sanity and dreams of the future. June 16 – July 22; Museum of Tolerance, 9786 W Pico Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90035; (310) 772-2505; www.museumoftolerance.com
